Presenter: Gale E. Martin, owner of Natives in Harmony Nursery, believes that the preservation of local genotypes is of the utmost importance and wants to convert others to natives by offering high quality, genetically appropriate native forbs and grasses as well as providing the expertise to use and care for them. Education is a big part of Gale’s mission, and she works hard to educate and support her customers and the public at large in their land-use decisions. She is passionate about making Ohio genotypes available for anyone interested in using native plants to create habitat for native pollinators, birds, and other wildlife species.

Gale has served on the boards of conservation and education non-profits such as the Ohio Prairie Association, Appalachia Ohio Alliance, the Headwaters Outdoor Education Center, and the Olentangy Watershed Alliance. Gale retired in 2017 from the Executive Director’s position at the Marion County Historical Society, a position she held for 13 years. before accepting the position with MCHS, Gale was the education specialist for the Morrow County Soil and Water Conservation District and spent time as a naturalist at the Mount Gilead State Park.
