Designing for habitat
@ Marin art & garden center

9:30am-12:30pm

Habitat gardens contain a profusion of foliage and flowers that create a feeling of sanctuary around us, making us happy- while sustaining wildlife. Flowers provide nectar and pollen resources that many beneficial insects and bees require. Shrubs and trees provide birds with plant structural diversity to nest and perch, and seeds and berries to feed on. Over 90% of birds feed their young insects, so where there are enough insects for fledglings, there is more potential for successful nesting. Let's fill your garden with bees, birds, butterflies and more!
