Niagara Falls Hort. Society presents Cathy Kavassalis ~ Getting to Biodiversity
October 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Niagara Falls Horticultural Society presents Cathy Kavassalis speaking on ‘GETTING TO BIODIVERSITY’ at our OCTOBER 10TH MEETING. 7-9pm Niagara Falls Public Library, (LaMarsh Room)4848 Victoria Avenue. All are welcome! First meeting is on us. Flower show/Raffle/Draw Prizes/Refreshments.
The world is a wondrous place and our portion of this planet is rich with unique species and ecosystems. Our landscapes support a wide array of interesting and beautiful plants that in turn support migratory birds, bats and butterflies as well as the many permanent inhabitants of our region. In the words of Sir David Attenburough, “We, homo sapiens, are dependent on the natural world and are part of it.” We gardeners can do a great deal to support and nurture the natural world within our care. By choosing plants wisely, caring for the soil and water, reducing our use of pesticides and fertilizers as well as by providing habitats for wildlife, we can create breathtaking biodiverse landscapes unique to our region. As we celebrate being a community of gardeners, I look forward to talking with you about ‘getting to biodiversity.’ Let’s get inspired together and plan how we can invite a greater variety of life to thrive in our gardens and communities.
