Science Café

Gardening with Wildlife

With guest speaker Valerie Morrill


Sunday, June 12th

3:00-6:00 pm

Bisbee Science Lab at 519 W Melody Lane

Whether your home’s outdoor space is an apartment balcony or a sprawling ranch, learn how to create a garden that attracts native wildlife and helps to restore habitat in Arizona’s urban, suburban and rural areas. Using resources such as the Certified Wildlife Habitat® program sanctioned by the National Wildlife Federation, learn how to sustainably provide food, water, cover and a place for wildlife to raise their young in your own backyard. At the same time learn how to respond to problems with nuisance wildlife and feral animals. Turning your space into a welcoming haven for local wildlife is fun, easy and makes a big difference for Arizona's native wildlife, be they birds, bats or butterflies.

As a field exercise, the group will prepare the documentation to apply for wildlife habitat certification for the meeting venue. Attendees are encouraged to bring photos or sketches of their own gardens for discussion.
