Garden for Wildlife Series: Part 4 of 4
April 30 @ 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.
In this, the final part of the series, features Creating and Caring for a Wildlife Garden presented by Deb Ellis, Native Plant Society on NJ
Like us, birds, animals, and insects need food, water, and shelter to live. By choosing locally native plants for your yard, you can transform any outdoor space into a wildlife sanctuary that also saves resources such as water and thrives without the use of fertilizer and pesticides. This presentation shows how to plant native shrubs and flowers that are easy to grow and sustain wildlife in all seasons. You will also learn how to care for your plantings through the year and how to modernize fall cleanup by “leaving the leaves” to nurture wildlife throughout the winter.
