|A successful class!|
This time, on September 15, I will be teaching a one evening class on gardening for wildlife, obviously one of my favorite topics!
Here is the description of the class from the Lifelong Learning Center's website:
- Do you want to create a sustainable landscape that attracts and encourages wildlife? If so, join David as he teaches you to provide all the features to draw birds, butterflies and other wildlife to your garden. This is a one night class where you will discuss the various components of creating an oasis for you and for wildlife in your garden.
|Native plants attract insects!|
Two days later (on September 17), Marilyn, one of the best native plant botanists in the state, will teach about native plants in the fall, how to plant, what to plant and how to identify. What a great native plant and wildlife garden week!
|Fall colors in the native plant garden|
- Who says it’s time to put your garden to rest? With the right plants
and methods, fall is the prime time to create a beautiful color
landscape. By using native plants (perennials, shrubs and trees) your
fall garden will look beautiful for you and for birds getting ready to
spend winter in Montana. We'll discuss plants with late blooms, leaves
of all colors, and which shrubs bear interesting fruits and pods. We'll
also talk about fall planting methods and how much to tidy up the garden
Hope to see you at one of these classes!
