Transform your landscape into a garden that attracts a wealth of beneficial wildlife, including birds, butterflies, a wide variety of insects, and amphibians. Unlock the important connections between the roles of pollinators and the plants and habitats they require. Explore Mt. Cuba Center’s naturalistic gardens to observe native bees in action and discover the best native plants for migrating and resident birds. Learn the importance of having water in the garden to support amphibians, damselflies, and bats and the value of creating environments that sustain wildlife year-round.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Three Thursdays: September 15 through 29 (Rain Date: Thursday, October 6)
