The auction will be open for bidding starting July 1st online at https://hhltmaine.org/donate/2016-silent-auction/ and will continue on site at our annual meeting from 6-6:55 p.m.
Following an update on Land Trust activities and a brief business meeting, Eric Topper, Education Director for Maine Audubon, will talk about the large selection of beautiful native flowers, shrubs and trees we can incorporate into our yards to attract and support a multitude of birds, butterflies and other interesting native wildlife.
Like many places, the landscape of coastal Maine has changed dramatically. Today, gardens, yards, neighborhoods and towns are playing increasingly critical roles in supporting native food webs for birds, pollinators and other wildlife. With an overall focus on restoring biodiversity, Topper’s presentation will introduce what individuals and groups can do, including what plants to choose and how to manage and maintain our gardens for their full ecological function and benefit. Our individual efforts to support wildlife can be both intimately rewarding and broadly beneficial.
All are welcome to attend this free event. Be prepared to come away inspired.
