Penn State Extension Nov. 11 Hybrid Workshop On Creating A Garden That Welcomes Wildlife

On November 11,
Penn State Extension will host a hybrid workshop on Creating A Garden That Welcomes Wildlife from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. at the Olewine Nature Center, Wildwood Park in Dauphin County.

Join Penn State Master Gardener Kevin Kelly as he tells his story of incrementally transforming his one-third acre suburban garden, with an abundance of non-native and some invasive plants, into a diverse, functioning landscape more suited to provide habitat for the declining insects, birds, and wildlife that share our planet. He will discuss native plants, nativars, and design tips to create beauty and a functional landscape.

What will you learn?

-- The science between the paradigm shift from a lawn-dominant landscape to one suited for wildlife

-- Creating a balance between the use of natives, nativars, and non-native plants

-- Tips learned during the incremental change
