Gardening For Beneficial Wildlife
How much more we can enjoy a well-landscaped yard when we share it with butterflies, songbirds and other desirable wildlife! This class provides an overview of meeting the basic needs of our animal neighbors: food, water, shelter, places to raise young, and sustainable gardening practices. It also discusses some specific measures for attracting butterflies, other pollinators, songbirds, and hummingbirds.
