Wings in the Garden – A Celebration of Florida’s Native Plants and Their Pollinators
October 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
You are cordially invited to Wings in the Garden – A Celebration of Florida’s Native Plants and Their Pollinators on October 28, 2023, 9:00 AM-noon.
Wings in the Garden is an open-house style event with topic experts located at separate stations so that you can move through at your own pace. Look for signs to direct you to the Native Plant Garden within the larger botanical garden area. This event is free and open to the public.
- The buzz on pollinators. We’ll highlight native wildflowers you can plant in your yard to attract and support butterflies, bees, and other pollinators.
- Attracting wildlife. Wildlife requires cover, food and water, and depends on native grasses, shrubs and trees. Plan to attract and protect the birds and bunnies through creating natural areas for biodiversity to thrive. The garden provides examples.
- The right plant for the right place. Several areas of the Native Plant Garden feature plant species that are found growing in the sandhill and hammock ecosystems of Hernando County. Learn about native species that may work best for the conditions on your site to bring the natural beauty of the Nature Coast into your home landscape.
- Imported plant invaders. In the garden, Chapter volunteers wage a constant battle to control several invaders. At this event, we will highlight some of these nasty invasive plants so that you can identify them and start to control them on your property.
