Attracting Butterflies, Birds and Bees to Your Garden
May 24 10 am Online via ZOOM, No cost
When we think of gardening, most of us think of flowers and food. However, what would a garden be without some wildlife? Butterflies, bees and birds not only provide natural beauty but a balance to our outdoor areas. The busy bees that pollinate our flowers and help produce fruit along with birds and butterflies that provide endless hours of entertainment are welcome critters to our backyard oasis. Join Jackie Bantle as she shares her ideas on how to provide the best backyard habitat to encourage your animal friends.
