Do you enjoy gardening? Want to promote native landscapes, so others too can enjoy the benefits of gardening for wildlife?

Audubon Rockies was excited to team up with Colorado Native Plant Society and High Plains Environmental Center to offer a workshop series, Wildscape Ambassadors. In fact, we had so much interest in the workshops that we had to create additional ones. Today we have even more passionate and skilled community members making a positive change for local wildlife, big and small ... because one person can make a difference!

WILDSCAPE AMBASSADOR 201 WORKSHOPS
Native pollinators, including butterflies, bees, and birds are declining in Colorado and elsewhere in the U.S. largely due to habitat loss. This talk will explore ways that home gardeners can help to reverse this trend by utilizing beautiful, water-saving, native plants that provide essential forage and shelter for wildlife.

Associations between plants and pollinators will be explored in detail, as well as information on how to grow the plants including height, width, soil and water requirements, and timing of bloom. The talk will also include an investigation of how the structure and arrangement of the garden design, and specific cultural practices, can benefit both plants and wildlife.

Phelan Gardens, 4955 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO
