Powerhouse Native Plants for Wildlife

 Registration is closed for this event
Design your garden with winter aesthetics and wildlife in mind!


Uncover 7 powerhouse native plants worthy of wildlife’s 5-star review! Whether it be for sustaining a bird’s stamina for winter migration, providing ample nectar for hungry bees and butterflies, or serving as a host plant for hundreds of juicy caterpillars to fuel the ecosystem food web, these native plants pack a punch in their ecological services. Collaborate with workshop peers on how to put this research into compassionate action, right in your backyard!

Please note that this event will be held in the regular zoom meeting format, not presentation mode. Therefore, all participants will be on screen and have the ability to interact with the speaker and other attendees during the meeting.
