Creating a Wild Friendly Garden without the Wild


Wednesday, March 17, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

There is strong interest in creating ecologically friendly gardens to attract anything from beneficial insects and butterflies to birds, bats, snakes, and toads. Some say it’s as easy as planting native plants but the results can often be wild, weedy spaces that you can’t manage and the neighbors want to mow over. It is a challenge to balance “wild and natural” with easy-to-manage and visually pleasing. Join Director Ed Lyon as he shares more than a list of plants that attract wildlife; he will address potential challenges and pitfalls and give advice on how to properly plan for success.

Note: pandemic precautions in place for this in person program.
