Attracting Birds, Butterflies & Backyard Wildlife
Thurs, Feb 6 at 1:15 pm / Hood Room
One of the joys of gardening is creating a beautiful, natural space that you, your family and the local birds, butterflies and other backyard wildlife can enjoy. Join author, blogger and media personality and National Wildlife Federation naturalist David Mizejewski for a fun and informative talk on creating wildlife-friendly gardens. David will go through each of the four components of habitat – food, water, shelter and places to raise young – explaining each and sharing tips, ideas and projects that participants can implement in their own gardens. David will talk about how to observe and enjoy wildlife and also how to avoid critter-conflicts at the same time. He’ll talk about the role of native plants in the garden and why wildlife depend upon them, and offer tips on water conservation, organic gardening, controlling invasive exotic species and other sustainable gardening practices. Finally, David will show you how you can have your garden recognized as an official “Certified Wildlife Habitat” and how you can help the National Wildlife Federation reach others in the Pacific Northwest and teach them about wildlife-friendly gardening.
Here’s what people are saying about David:
