Protect & Serve your Over-wintering Wildlife • Miami County

Saturday, Oct 4th, 2014 @ 10am-noon
27995 Plum Creek Road • Paola, KS • Map

Homeowners may understand that native plants are necessary for wildlife as food and shelter in the spring and summer but unintentionally destroy their winter habitat and food supply when they do their fall clean-up. Learn why it is noble to leave your garden in a more natural state (code for “messy”!) until spring. Once you see the cocoons, chrysalids and nests that shelter our wild friends through the cold winter, you can make more informed clean-up decisions.
Long Lips Farm is a certified wildlife habitat and features many native plants that support our wild friends. It is located 1/2 blk South of K-68.
