A guided tour of the Fletcher Wildlife Garden to explore pollinators, wildlife habitat and native plant gardening
A project of the Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club, the Fletcher Wildlife Garden is now more than 25 years old. The idea was to create natural habitat typical of our area – a wetland, a meadow, old and new woods, a hedgerow – providing food, water, and shelter. Local wildlife quickly found homes there and our species lists grew. The Fletcher Wildlife Garden holds an annual sale of wildflowers to share the success of the project and encourages all residents to attract butterflies, birds, and other creatures to their yards.
The garden tour will be led by members of the Wild Pollinator Partners, a network of individuals and organizations committed to protecting and promoting wild pollinators. Entomologist Lydia Wong will be on hand to answer any questions and to help identify insect species.
