Encouraging Wildlife Diversity in Designed Landscapes

March 14 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

An abundance and diversity of wildlife are some of the best indicators of an ecologically well-designed landscape. By understanding how pollinators, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians select their habitats during each season of the year, we can design landscapes that effectively attract and support a diversity of wildlife. This presentation will provide practical methods for how to design your landscaping to attract and benefit a diversity of wildlife species.

This program will include a 35-40 min. video sent in advance to registered participants which will introduce you to the elements of wildlife habitat and needs. During the in-person portion, Matt will dive a bit deeper into those concepts and then lead a walk around the Audubon property. Examples of established and potential wildlife habitats enhancements will be viewed to illustrate what can be done at home.

This in-person workshop will take place both indoors and outdoors. Dress for the weather and an easy walk around the Massabesic Center sanctuary. Terrain is primarily flat but uneven ground covered in short grass, but be prepared for the possibility of muddy or wet conditions in March. Registration required by March 13.

Presenter: Matt Tarr, UNH Extension Wildlife Specialist
