Gardening For Bees & Butterflies (and other pollinators)
Date: September 14, 2 – 4 pm
Creating a garden which attracts and retains butterflies, bees and other pollinators can be a challenge, especially in our eastern Newfoundland climate. At MUN Botanical Garden, we have been successfully researching and applying the fundamental theories, practices and ecology of creating habitats for these special creatures.
Join Todd Boland, research horticulturist and Anne Madden, education coordinator for a two hour program which will include local species identification, suitable host and nectar plant species, and some habitat management practices that the Botanical Garden has successfully implemented both in our flower gardens and along our nature trails.
Format: PowerPoint presentation, hands-on demonstration and a garden tour. Please be prepared to go outside; comfortable walking shoes recommended.
Fee: $30 per person
Special rate for Friends of the Garden: $20 per person.
Free for Students (including Memorial University of Newfoundland, Marine Institute and College of the North Atlantic).
