Gardening for Birds, Butterflies and Bees



Join us at the Pine River Library on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 10 to 11 a.m.  Wild Ones member, Karen Syverson, will host a workshop about how to create gardens for your yard that will benefit birds, attract butterflies and encourage pollinators.  She will talk about the benefits of growing Wisconsin native plants and show you how to create a native plant community for your yard. 


Karen has photos of beautiful Wisconsin native plants, many that grow in Waushara County, which you can include in your home landscape.  She will provide information on how to grow and purchase native plants for your garden as well as what to avoid growing on your property.


Karen tends the Pine River Library native plant garden and will be available to talk about what is growing there as well as what she includes in her home gardens.  Please register at the Pine River Library.  Walk-ins welcome!


Karen is a member of Wild Ones Fox Valley, a local chapter of a national organization, Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes.
