Event description

Description

Want to watch birds and butterflies from the comfort of your back deck? Interested in helping pollinators? If so, join the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) and Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) for an interactive workshop on wildlife-friendly gardens. Learn how to attract and support birds, butterflies and other wildlife through careful plant selection, maintenance and design.

Experienced 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 staff will help participants apply for this certification during the workshop. Bring a few photos 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

And if that isn’t enough to make you register, each participant will receive the CWF Wildlife-friendly Gardening Guide and the Ontario Invasive Plant Council (OIPC) Grow Me Instead booklet.

All skill levels are welcome. Come to learn and share.

Please note that paid parking is now in effect, however TBG members park for free.

About the instructors:

  • Sarah Coulber, an avid naturalist and gardener, is an education specialist at CWF.

  • Carole Wheatley has been on CWF’s garden team for more than 20 years and facilitates their Garden Habitat Certification.

  • Colleen Cirillo is the director of education at TBG, a board member at LEAF, and co-chair of OIPC’s Horticulture Outreach Collaborative.
