Gardening for Monarchs & Other Wildlife With Native Plants in Texas

September 14 - September 16

$50
gardening for monarchs & other wildlife with native plants in Texas a two day online zoom workshop
To bring back the monarchs and help protect all pollinators & other wildlife we need to create native gardens in our urban & suburban spaces. Through this workshop, participants will learn to design, install, and maintain their own monarch-friendly native gardens —that also benefit many kinds of wildlife—choosing the proper native plants for their ecotype, site, and weather conditions. Workshop participants will also learn to use their new native gardens as an environmental educational tool.

Main Topics:

  • How gardening for monarchs benefits many other wildlife species
  • The human benefits of native gardening
  • Importance of gardening with native plants
  • Components of a native garden
  • Creating native gardens in Texas, what to keep in mind
  • Providing themed native gardens
  • Growing your own native milkweed, the successful technique
  • Basics of Landscape Designing (includes exercises)
  • Installing and maintaining your new native garden
  • Other resources and tools that will help you with your native gardening projects
  • Virtual Tour to a recently installed native garden

This is the third level of training of the Monarch Stewards Certification Program. If you have attended the first two levels already, once you attend this workshop, you will be certified as one of the National Wildlife Federation’s Monarch Stewards.

Anyone can participate in this workshop, whether you have attended the first two levels or not.

We look forward to seeing you on September 14th and September 16th!

Amid COVID-19, this interactive two-day workshop will be hosted online (via Zoom) on September 14 (12pm-5pm), and September 16 (12pm-6pm), with plenty of breaks and time for Q & A.
