Webinar Time: 7:00p-8:30p
Learn beneficial gardening practices.
Author Nancy Lawson will present The Humane Gardener: Nurturing Habitat for Wildlife.
Why do we call some insects “beneficial” while others are “pests”? Why do we welcome some larger animals to our garden while calling others “nuisances”? Why are some plants considered “desirable” while others are “weeds”? In this myth-busting talk, learn how common growing methods divide the natural world into false dichotomies and perpetuate misperceptions about the wild species living among us. Discover practical ways to put humane gardening philosophies into action by protecting nesting sites for insects, birds and mammals; eliminating unintended hazards; identifying and nurturing plants that provide food and shelter; restoring habitat with minimal disturbance to animals; and humanely resolving conflicts with mammals and other commonly misunderstood creatures.
Following a brief Williamson County Chapter business meeting beginning at 7 pm, the guest presentation will last about an hour. The presentation will NOT be recorded for our YouTube channel.
You must register in advance to attend.
