Wild Landscaping – Sunday, 9/26, 10am – 11am
The plants you select matter when constructing landscapes for wildlife. Join Kathleen Sayce for a walk around the site to learn about what species are going where, and what the new office landscape will look like in years to come. We are using native plants to enhance insect diversity, which also will improve habitat for birds and other wildlife. The wild lawn is a mix of naturally low growing grasses and perennials; all can take one fall mowing per year and thrive. The view corridors from the office and visitors center to the bay have taller grasses and perennials. The wet pastures along the new trail to the dike will be planted to perennials and bulbs. Dike slopes will have perennials to promote pollinator, insect and bird diversity. Trees and shrubs will be used to provide screening and again, more habitat at several locations. For details, and plant lists, come and tour the new site.
