Did you know that most of our native bees nest underground? Or that opossums and skunks devour insects often considered “pests” in gardens? Have you heard that native plants and caterpillars are essential to the survival of baby birds?
Wild flora and fauna are critical to healthy ecosystems, but sadly, the typical suburban lot does little to support these amazing creatures. Wildlife gardening expert Nancy Lawson, founder of HumaneGardener.com, will explain how to turn human havens into habitats for all animals. An interactive Q&A session will provide ideas for applying the concepts to your own backyard. From gentle soil cultivation to humane conflict resolution to native plantings, you can use simple techniques to create a beautiful, life-sustaining garden.
Nancy Lawson is a nature writer, wildlife gardening expert, and founder of HumaneGardener.com, an outreach initiative to help homeowners create life-sustaining habitats in their own backyards. She is the Humane Backyard columnist for All Animals magazine.
