A Garden for Pollinators & Wildlife: Natural landscaping for a better backyardThursday February 27, 2020
5:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Do you want to attract butterflies, birds, bees and other wildlife to your backyard? Did you know that the landscaping in your yard could be habitat for wildlife? You can learn how to help pollinators and other wildlife by making some simple and easy adjustments to your landscaping and gardening practices.
In “A Garden for Pollinators and Wildlife,” an hour-long slide presentation, SELTies, NH Natural Resources Steward, and Speaking for Wildlife volunteer Vicki J. Brown will provide insights on ways to attract pollinators, like butterflies, as well as songbirds, mammals, and even mysterious amphibians such as red-backed salamanders to your backyard. We will discuss choosing plants, gardening techniques, wildlife and habitats, use of native plants, and issues such as invasive plants. Presentation includes interactive Q&A, handouts and other helpful materials.
This program is brought to you by SELT and Speaking for Wildlife, a volunteer project of UNH Cooperative Extension, with funding and support from the NH Charitable Foundation, the Davis Environmental Foundation, NH Fish and Game Department, and NH Natural Heritage Bureau.
