GreenUP, Peterborough’s environmental non-profit agency, has won the North American Native Plant Society’s Native Plant Garden Award for 2013.

The award was given to GreenUP for its work at the Ecology Park, which involves the conservation of native plants and education programs.

The Ecology Park, located adjacent to Beavermead Park, is five acres of gardens and natural areas, with a children’s activities area, a maze and more.

The society granting the award is a volunteer charity that works to preserve indigenous plants in wild and developed areas.

The award will be presented Oct. 19 in Markham at the society’s annual general meeting
