Creating a Wildlife-Friendly Native Garden

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Love watching wildlife and want to attract more to your backyard? Whether you are a novice or an experienced gardener, this three-hour wildscaping class is sure to inspire you to take your garden to the next level. Through a classroom presentation and outdoor habitat tour, Meredith O’Reilly will highlight some of the best native plants to attract birds, butterflies, and other beautiful fauna to your Central Texas garden throughout the seasons. Additionally, you will learn how to utilize color, height, design and planting strategies, and easy project ideas to maximize the wildlife you can attract, all while benefitting the ecosystem as a whole and keeping your garden neighbor-friendly. Of course, ecosystem gardening actually begins below ground – this class will take a closer look at the soil food web and important sustainable practices. The class is limited to 20 participants and will be held on Saturday, October 19, from 9 am to noon, in a central Austin location. Tuition for the class is $15 for TAS members and $20 for non-members. To register, use the link below.
