  • There is both joy and challenges in gardening for wildlife – it requires different approaches and strategies, even a different mind-set, from regular gardening.
  • This talk addresses the characteristics of plants and garden design that help you create a wildlife-friendly garden, including strategies for food, shelter and water.
  • It details practices that encourage birds and beneficial insects to make their home in your garden. Resources specific to the Ottawa area will be discussed.
  • A brief overview of the process for certifying your garden as wildlife habitat or as a monarch way-station will be reviewed.
  • Rebecca Last is a Master Gardener with MG Ottawa-Carleton who encourages the audience to consider joining a growing army of Citizen Scientists who are helping us better understand how people are changing the natural world.
