Friends of Scarborough Marsh is pleased to host a free lecture, “Bringing Nature Home”, on Wednesday, September 30th, at 6:00 PM. 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. Our individual efforts to support wildlife can be both intimately rewarding and broadly beneficial. With an overall focus on Maine birds and their habitats, Eric Topper, Director of Education for Maine Audubon 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. Eric will also discuss 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. Our hope is to raise awareness in and around Scarborough Marsh.
Please register here, and you will receive a secure Zoom link via email on the day of the lecture.
