Creating a Haven for Wildlife

Location: Fairfax Library
The Program: Thousands of acres of habitat are lost to development and other human activity in the United States every year. We can offset some of this loss by designing our gardens to attract and sustain native wildlife. By choosing the right plants and adding the right features, we can invite an array of birds, hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, beneficial insects, and other animals to our gardens. Join us and find out how to provide the essential ingredients for a habitat haven, including food, water, cover, and nesting space.
The Speaker: Betsy McGee has been a Marin Master Gardener since 2008. She has served on the Sustainable Landscape Practices committee and is a past member and section coordinator of the Larkspur Community Garden. A few years ago, she re-landscaped her own garden from a "lawn-centric" design to one that is water-wise and provides habitat for wildlife. Her garden was one of the featured Marin gardens on the Bay-Friendly Gardening Tour in 2012.
