Seashore Gardening With Native Plants
Pat Sutton, a working naturalist and wildlife gardening champion for over 30 years, will showcase the very best native trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, and wildflowers that can survive and thrive in seashore conditions. Learn how these same native plants are life-giving to birds and pollinators (butterflies, moths, bees, and more). There are few other places where property owners (and communities) can make such a difference for wildlife as southern New Jersey, where the geography concentrates millions of migrant birds (and butterflies). The program features “eye-candy” wildlife gardens in South Jersey that have successfully transformed ho-hum, sterile yards into multi-dimensional native plant gardens full of life.
