The Birds, the Bees, the Flowers and the Trees: Why Native Plants Matter for Wildlife Conservation Virtual Lecture
Thursday, March 4, 2021 | 4pm | Zoom
The Botanic Garden of Smith College

Pre-registration required: https://bit.ly/bulbshow2021lecture

Biodiversity is declining at an alarming rate across the globe—so what can we do to help in our everyday lives? The green spaces in our yards and gardens can provide one solution to restore wildlife habitat in urban and suburban landscapes. Yet, we need more information to guide our landscaping decisions and plant selection. This lecture will describe the ecological and evolutionary relationships between plants, pollinators, and songbirds and highlight recent research on why native plants are an essential component of ‘wildlife-friendly’ gardening practices. Through her research on plant-animal interactions and urban ecology, Dr. Narango will also discuss resources to identify which native plants, and how many, are necessary to create functional wildlife habitat ‘at home’.
