Let’s face it, the birds and bees can use all the help they can get these days. Fortunately, there’s plenty that gardeners can do to provide much needed habitat and still have an attractive garden.
Join Chesapeake Forum for a three-course program on conservation gardening beginning April 18th and learn how to provide habitat for local and migratory birds, butterflies and other beneficials. Field trips will trigger your imagination as you learn how to find suitable native plants to add to your landscape to support your favorite pollinators, and perhaps replace plants from foreign habitats.
The course will focus on the habitat of the Eastern Shore region and the unique solutions that native plant options can provide when puzzling over how to “perk up” your landscape with care-free selections that will survive from year to year while providing a positive habitat for pollinators.
You Too Can Practice Conservation Landscaping is three (3) classroom sessions on Tuesday, April 18, 25th and May 2nd from 1-2:30 PM. Plus, two (2) field trips on Friday April 21st and 28th from 10-11:30 AM and an optional field trip to Mt. Cuba on May 5th, which requires a separate registration.
