Event description

Description

How to attract native birds, lizards and insects to your garden

Presented by Mike Bowie

Bring a gold coin donation and Mike will demonstrate how to increase the native biodiversity in your garden, section or farm through the use of specific plants, planting designs and refugia. He will also outline ideas for projects that children could undertake or assist with.

Children – challenge Mike by bringing along an invertebrate you have found in your garden for him to identify.

Mike has worked at Lincoln University as an entomologist for over 30 years on many ecological restoration projects including Quail Island, Mahoe Reserve and Te Ara Kakariki (Greenway Canterbury Trust). He has written many publications in the fields of entomology and ecological restoration, including co-authoring "Backyard Biodiversity in Canterbury".

You do not need to register for this event, just come along.




Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens are located on James St, behind the Maternity Hospital. Please park on the street.
