Garden for Wildlife: Native Plant Propagation

September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Garden for Wildlife: Native Plant Propagation

Saving New Jersey’s bees, butterflies, and other wildlife starts with YOU!  If you would like to make your backyard a better place for wildlife, join us at home on Wednesday September 30th, 2020 7pm-8pm EST for our next installment from our Garden for Wildlife webinar series.

The native plant garden is never complete, even in a perennial system. Some species spread throughout the garden while others peter out. This webinar will provide the home gardener with propagation techniques for making the most of their existing landscape, with an overview on collecting and growing seed from existing plants. This presentation will be given by Brittany Dobrzynski, Stewardship Project Coordinator – South, who heads up seed collection efforts for restoration projects in Cape May County. This webinar is FREE, please RSVP on Eventbrite (Link Below).
