• Transform Your Lawn to Layers – Wednesday, September 29, 7-8 pm
In this one hour in-person talk, Anna Fialkoff will guide you in transforming your lawn into three dimensional native plant habitat. Whether you turn your lawn into native groundcovers, meadow, or forest –– your landscape will benefit from layers of native plants to create a rich, wildlife-friendly tapestry.
• Adopt Mindful Landscape Practices – Wednesday, October 27, 7-8 pm
Is planting native enough to support local wildlife? Just as critical as what we plant is what we do in our landscapes throughout the year. In this one hour in-person talk, Anna Fialkoff will talk about how to shift from harmful management habits and dependence on fertilizers, pesticides, and fossil fuels to adopting mindful practices that benefit salamanders, bees, birds, butterflies, and the planet’s health.
• Plant Native Trees that Support Local Food Webs – Wednesday, November 17, 7-8 pm
Planted around homes and businesses, in parks and public open spaces, along city streets and highway margins and even in parking lot islands, native trees offer countless benefits beyond their four-season beauty––purifying air, shading and cooling in hot weather, storing atmospheric carbon, minimizing flooding and stormwater runoff and helping to sustain vital pollinators, birds and other wildlife. In this one hour in-person talk, Anna Fialkoff will teach the why, what, and how of planting native trees to rewild our landscapes.
About the Rewilding Series
Wild Seed Project’s Pledge to Rewild initiative is a call-to-action, motivating people to plant natives to support bees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife in order to make positive environmental change in their own communities. Maine Audubon and Wild Seed Project are teaming up to bring you a three-part series that goes in-depth on some of the key concepts of rewilding: transforming your lawn into layers of native plants, adopting mindful landscape practices that benefit wildlife and the planet’s health, and planting native trees that support local food webs.
