Habitat Gardening Workshop:
Bring Nature Home: Grow a Wildlife Habitat Garden
There are many ways to enhance the wildlife value of any garden. View successful Bay Area wildlife gardens and ponds, plants for each season and some of the birds, pollinators and other wildlife these gardens attract. We'll look at a variety of habitat plants at the Nursery and discuss their care in a garden setting, and we'll end the workshop with a tour of the Native Plant Garden where you will see many of the plants that nourish birds, butterflies and other wildlife species.
