Description

Join the Canadian Wildlife Federation and the Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) to learn how to make your outdoor space inviting for birds, butterflies and other wildlife. This is an interactive educational workshop where facilitators share their knowledge and guide participants in learning how they can make their outdoor space wildlife-friendly.

Experienced CWF and TBG garden educators will present on the following:

  • key features of a wildlife-friendly garden
  • native plants of southern Ontario
  • invasive plants and alternatives
  • iNaturalist citizen science tool
  • CWF’s Garden Habitat Certification (CWF educators will help participants apply for this certification on site. Bring a photo of your garden if you are interested.)

Additional components include:

  • a guided tour of TBG’s gardens and the adjacent Wilket Creek Ravine
  • an opportunity to work on your own garden plans and seek the advice of experts

Participants will receive CWF’s new Wildlife-friendly Gardening Guide – a 20 page colour booklet and and the Ontario Invasive Plant Council (OIPC) Grow Me Instead booklet.

All skill levels are welcome – come to learn and/or share.
