Gardening for Wildlife, with David Mizejewski
May 5, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm$10
On May 5th, Friends of Skidaway Audubon and the Landings Garden Club will be hosting a presentation by David Mizejewski from The National Wildlife Federation.
David is a naturalist, television personality and a well-known and acclaimed spokesperson for NWF. His topic for our presentation will be “Gardening for Wildlife”. He points out that the need to restore wildlife habitat in our cities, towns and neighborhoods is greater than ever. The Monarch butterfly population has plummeted, as have populations of many native bees. New classes of pesticides have emerged posing additional risks to wildlife. Many songbird and amphibian species continue to decline and today we face an unprecedented wildlife crisis, with one third of American species at risk of extinction in the coming decades. What can we do to help? David will give us some suggestions and answer questions you may have concerning your own garden. He will also explain how we can have our gardens certified by NWF as wildlife sanctuaries.
Please join us for this special event in the Plantation Club ballroom. This event is free to members of Friends of Skidaway Audubon and the Landings Garden Club. All others will be $10.00 per person at the door
Doors open at 4:30 PM. Please join us for light hors d’oeuvres and one of the Signature Skidaway Audubon drinks at the member/cash bar. Experience the Bee Sting, Milkweed Martini, or the non-alcohol Pollinators Punch. David Mizejewski’s presentation will start at 5:00PM.
An opportunity to purchase David’s newest book Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife, Expanded Second Edition and book signing will take place immediately after the presentation at 6:00pm.
Pollinator plant pre-order forms from Thompson’s Nursery will be available at the event. Delivery will be on May 25 at the HarborFest along with other plants to purchase that day.
