Description

Are you curious about helping pollintors or attracting birds to your garden? Join CWF and University of Ottawa Professor, Jessica Forrest Saturday, September 7 to learn about this and much more!

This two hour event includes:

  • A guided tour around CWF’s wildlife-friendly demonstration garden, where you will discover many of Canada’s beautiful native plants and different features that support wildlife.
  • Short presentations on the fascinating lives of bees, their important role in pollinating plants and how to make your outdoor space inviting for bees, birds, butterflies and other important wildlife.
  • The opportunity to learn how to use iNaturalist.ca, a popular citizen science tool that is helping scientists monitor populations of various species and can help you identify what is in your garden.
  • Assistance if wishing to apply for Garden Habitat Certification.

Participants will also receive our new Wildlife-friendly Gardening Guide – a 20 page colour booklet to support your wildlife gardening efforts no matter your budget, property size or schedule!
