The choices we make in our yards and gardens can have an impact on the wildlife diversity of our local ecosystems. With so much land in suburban and rural yards, we can literally garden as if life (and the diversity of wildlife) depends on it! Attend our Gardening Seminars to learn ways gardening can improve soil health, support complex food webs, protect threatened species, help local water quality, decrease habitat fragmentation and more.
Soil: The Ecosystem Under Our Feet, 10:00 – 11:00
Dr. Jeffery Corney, TWC Executive Director
“Soil is the great connector of our lives, the source and destination of us all.” -Wendell Berry. We will learn why soil is so much more than just “dirt” by exploring how soil forms, what comprises a healthy soil, what fantastic beasts live within the soil and how soil makes possible all of the plant and animal life that we have come to enjoy and depend upon.
Promoting Wildlife Diversity in Your Yard, 11:15 – 12:15
Lynda Price, TWC Senior Naturalist
Learn how to create living landscapes and healthy plant communities while enjoying gardening and wildlife watching. Increase the diversity of plants in your landscape, discover ecosystem friendly gardening techniques and then learn how to share your backyard with the wildlife it attracts.
Gardening for Pollinators, 1:00 – 2:00
Pat Dutton, Pollinator Specialist
Pollinators are under threat from a variety of stresses (including habitat loss, pests, pesticides and climate change), but gardeners can make a difference in their own gardens. With a bit of knowledge and effort, gardeners can choose plants and practices that help pollinators.
