Richmond Hill Horticultural Society February Meeting - "The Growing Importance of Gardening for Nature"

Event Date: 
Tuesday, February 6, 2024 - 7:00pm
Event Location: 

All are welcome!

Natural habitats in southern Ontario have suffered a dramatic reduction in both area and quality.

With the added stresses from a rapidly changing climate, the importance of maintaining native plants across the landscape is of growing importance to the diversity of wildlife that rely on them. Gardeners can play an important role in helping to provide sources of food for birds and native pollinators, shelter and other natural features in their yards that can better ensure species survival in more urbanized areas. Creating a more natural garden can also provide safe passage for those species that migrate through our cities and towns in spring and fall.

This presentation will highlight some of the simple actions gardeners can take to make their properties both beautiful and more beneficial to the many species that share our southern Ontario landscape. 

Meetings begin with a welcome and general announcements, which precede introduction of the guest speaker.

This is a hybrid meeting. Cost is $5 for members.  No fee for members.
