Birds, Bees & Butterflies - Creating habitat with Native Plants

Join us for an evening of inspiration and learning from three local speakers who will share their knowledge, experience and passion about using native plants for gardening and habitat restoration. Each one of us can help counter climate change and habitat loss by planting even just a small garden of native flowers. Come and learn about how such a tiny effort can have such a big impact on restoring nature.

Date: March 18

Time: 6:30pm

Hybrid General Meeting at the Royal Canadian Legion, Perth

Dr. Shelley Ball, biologist and CFUW Environment Chair will introduce us to why the preservation and restoration of native habitat is so critical and how we can each play a role in native habitat restoration in our own backyards.

Clara Misener is a grade 12 student from PDCI. Her interest in the environment and sustainability is reflected in her membership in the Suzuki Butterflyway Project – a volunteer-led movement that focuses on creating habitats for local bees and butterflies across Canada. Clara has been involved in this initiative, running a local chapter in Perth, since grade 9.

Chloe Lajoie, National Conservation Director at Watersheds Canada will speak about their Natural Edge program which is focused on restoring shoreline and agricultural buffers. Watersheds Canada is a registered charity that provides habitat restoration and education programs to shoreline property owners, community groups, students, families, and municipalities across the country so they can protect their lakes, rivers, and shorelands.
