Attracting Wildlife to Small-Scale Gardens

  • This event has passed.

By planting native species, a typical suburban lot can be transformed into a safe haven for local fauna. However, wildlife value is not equal across all native plants. Join Leah Brooks as she discusses how to choose native plant compositions that will maximize the wildlife value of your small space. From blueberry to goldenrod, explore a variety of native perennials that will turn your yard into a bird and pollinator paradise. A garden walk to view the plants is included.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Sunday, June 5 (Rain Date: Sunday, June 12)

Leah Brooks is Mt Cuba’s Public Programs Assistant. She is a University of Delaware graduate with dual BS in Environmental Science and Wildlife Ecology. Her passion is sharing the joy of nature and native gardening with others
