The Pollinator Friendly Landscape
The Friends of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History &
Association to Preserve Cape Cod present:
The Pollinator Friendly Landscape: Beyond Plant Selection
with Dr. Annie White

Sunday, March 18, 2018 at 1pm.

A landscape rich with a diversity of flowering plants is not only beautiful but helps support the thousands of species of bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinating insects we have in here in the U.S. However, planning your pollinator-friendly landscape does not end with your plant list. The layout of your gardens, layout of your plants, and your maintenance practices all affect pollinators. Dr. White will discuss a set of considerations for choosing the best types of plants for pollinators, plus how to use them to create the best pollinator sanctuary possible.

A native of rural Vermont, Annie holds a master of science degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Wisconsin—Madison and a PhD in Plant & Soil Science from The University of Vermont. Currently, she is the owner of NECTAR Landscape Design Studio & Consulting in Burlington, Vermont. She conducts research on native cultivars and also promotes pollinator friendly landscaping practices in all her design work.

Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 1pm.

If you’ve ever wanted to add the beautiful chaos of a healthy flowering meadow to your landscape, this presentation will demystify the steps. Kathy Connolly will discuss the definition of a meadow, which may surprise you, meadow ecology, the role of native plant species, and steps you can take right now to start planting a new meadow or encourage an existing meadow to grow. She’ll discuss the challenges of integrating a meadow into more conventional landscape settings. She'll also discuss deer and other pests, sources of supply, helpful books, and websites.

Kathy Connolly is a landscape designer, writer, and speaker with a penchant for nature-scaping. Her design clients include municipalities, state parks, homeowners, and nonprofit organizations. A meadow-owner for more than 20 years, she now helps landowners establish meadows and low-mow lawns, as well as vegetated buffers for waterside areas and other naturalized landscapes. Connolly has an MA in Land Use Planning and Landscape Design from the Conway School. She is an accredited organic land care professional through NOFA and is active in several conservation organizations. She is a regular columnist for The Day community papers and websites, which circulate throughout southeastern Connecticut.

Invasive Weeds: What You Can Do
The Friends of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History &
Association to Preserve Cape Cod present:
Invasive Weeds: What You Can Do

with Mike Bald

 

Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 1pm.

Owner Mike Bald of “Got Weeds?” a Vermont based company, has years of experience fighting non-native invasive species that can dominate our landscapes. He uses manual and non-synthetic control methods to eradicate, contain, or suppress non-native invasive plants.

Manual control methods ARE effective in many scenarios, but few people have documented their efforts through to completion.  Mike has worked to control numerous plant species, including giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed, black swallow-wort, Japanese barberry, and wild parsnip.  A goal of Got Weeds? is to demonstrate through careful documentation that proper planning and appropriate treatments can be successful without turning to the use of synthetic chemical products.

Join Mike as he will share his insights and proven expertise to help landowners safely control non-native invasive plants!
