Transform your landscape into a garden that attracts a wealth of beneficial wildlife, including birds, bees, butterflies, and amphibians. Unlock the important connections between the roles of pollinators, the habitats they require, and the plants that feed them. Explore Mt. Cuba Center's naturalistic gardens to observe native bees in action, and discover the best native plants for migrating and resident birds, especially hummingbirds. Learn ways to include water features that support amphibians, damselflies, and bats, and take your home landscape to a new level that sustains wildlife year-round. Bring your lunch.
