If You Plant It, They Will Come: Planning and Planting your Bee, Bird and Butterfly Garden
Friday, March 9th, 7:30 pm
The Red House at Inlet Pond County Park, 65275 Route 48, Greenport, NY
Turning your backyard into a natural haven for wildlife is easier than you may think. In fact, once you decide to start "going native," you'll discover that you use much less time, energy and water than you did before, and absolutely no chemicals. And you don't have to go completely wild--you can begin the process gradually.
NFAS president Diana Van Buren will focus on the 20 year evolution of her own back yard, from flowerless grassy lot to exasperating English-style perennial border to the insect and bird-friendly flower and vegetable garden that exists today.
Chris Kelly will be joining us after the program to answer your questions and provide native plant advice. In addition to being the general manager of The Plantage wholesale perennial nursery in Mattituck, Chris is also master beekeeper, and holds a B.S. in Entomology from Cornell University. He is on the Board of the Long Island Native Plant Initiative.
Doors open at 7 pm for refreshments.
