How to Build a Better Garden: Attracting Wildlife into Your Yard with Native Plants
Friday, September 21, at 10 a.m. in the Large Auditorium
When gardening to benefit wildlife, most people think about planting flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. But frogs, box turtles, and dragonflies and many other species can use our help, too. When you grow native plants you can make your yard part of the natural habitat that nurtures these wild neighbors. Just let the size and location of your yard help you decide which animal species would be able to safely live in your yard. Join us as Master Gardner Peggy Thompson explores the use of native plants to benefit wildlife in your yard.
