Native Plants & Natural Papermaking Workshop

Native plants are critical for pollinators and people in northern Indiana - and across the world. This St. Francis Week, all tri-campus students are invited to get to know some of the plants that also call this region home. Brett Peters, Assistant Director of the Notre Dame Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility (ND-LEEF), will introduce many unique species, their habitats, and how the ND-LEEF team supports ecological research. After you’ve “met” the plants, you will learn how to transform them into paper alongside Julie Tourtillotte. Tourtillotte is a professor of Art at Saint Mary’s College where she teaches drawing, fibers and video art. 


Location: ND LEEF facility at St. Patrick's Park
