Wild About Jersey-Friendly Yards: If You Plant It, They Will Come
July 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for our new 2020 Jersey-Friendly Yards Webinar Series and learn how to create healthy habitat for wildlife in your yard.
The Jersey-Friendly Yards website is designed to guide you through the steps to a healthier, more wildlife-friendly yard. Loss of natural habitat throughout the world has led to serious declines in populations of pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. By gardening for wildlife in our yards, we can help reverse this trend. As Dr. Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home and Nature’s Best Hope says, “Garden as if life depended on it.”

The Wild About Jersey-Friendly Yards webinars will be free and provided via WebEx Events. They will be every other Tuesday at 7:00 pm from July through September. The live sessions will be an hour long with time for questions. To join the webinars, you will need either a computer, tablet, or smartphone with speakers.

July 21: If You Plant It, They Will Come
Butterflies, pollinators, birds, and other wildlife rely on native plants to survive. Dr. Randi Eckel will discuss the importance of supporting our native wildlife within our gardens, show examples of some creatures that rely upon specific plants, and discuss the complexities of attracting rare wildlife (rare butterflies, for example) to our gardens.
Presenter: Dr. Randi Eckel, owner of Toadshade Wildflower Farm
