URI Master Gardeners: Gardening with Native Plants @ Central

Part Three of a Three-Part Series
Part One | Part Two

Learn how to transform your lawn into a wildlife habitat with native plants!  Enjoy visits from birds, butterflies, and more while mowing less, having a place to put leaves, and working WITH nature to conserve water, reduce erosion, and even save money on heating and cooling.
Free and open to the public. Register below to receive email reminders of the event or contact the library for assistance.

The URI Master Gardener Program will send an evaluation survey following the event. Those who complete the survey will be entered into a raffle for a free grab bag of seeds!

Melissa Guillet is a 2011 Master Gardener who focuses on restoring and rewilding habitats.  Her own ¼ acre backyard  supports nearly 40 bird species, 33 bees and wasps, over 20 moths and butterflies, walking sticks, five amphibian species, 2 snakes, red and gray fox, deer, raccoon, opossum, skunk, gray squirrel, flying squirrel, chipmunk, and groundhog, yet she still harvests blueberries and other native foods.  She runs the nonprofit 15 Minute Field Trips, helping youth advocate for the environment through art and community action.
