Garden for Wildlife Series: Part 3 of 4
April 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Co-sponsored by the Monmouth Chapter of the NPSNJ and the Bayberry Garden Club of Brielle
Wildlife, including birds, bees, and butterflies, are declining at an alarming rate, but you can be part of the solution. Learn how to attract and sustain wildlife, what wildlife need to survive, and how you can be a part of the new movement to create wildlife habitat in your own backyard, simply by planting beautiful and resilient native plants.
This part of the series looks at Designing Your Own Wildlife Garden presented by Kim Rowe, Native Plant Society of NJ and featuring Kelly Balon presenting a case study of her beautiful garden in Brick.
Your own yard can become a wildlife habitat in no time: just plant native plants! This presentation will discuss how to attract wildlife to your garden by addressing their most important needs. We’ll talk about how to choose a site, how to design a garden for beauty and environmental benefits, how to select native plants and avoid invasive ones, and how to plant for greatest visual and environmental impact. Even if you have a small garden or live in an apartment, you can plant for wildlife. Join us to learn how to create a beautiful and functional wildlife garden!
The next program in the series will be:
