Join Berkshire Conservation District for an exciting webinar by Amy Meltzer on August 3, at 7:30 PM on 'Gardening for Biodiversity with Native Plants: Providing habitat for pollinators, birds and other essential wildlife.

In this talk, Amy will focus on the current biodiversity crisis, the evolutionary history among native plants, insects, birds, and fungi, and how these interdependent relationships among diverse species are necessary for survival. She will show how growing native plants and using ecological landscape practices can simultaneously reverse biodiversity loss, increase resilience in our landscapes, and slow climate change - all while creating a beautiful garden!

Amy Meltzer is on the steering committee of the Mass Pollinator Network, is an active member of Grow Native Massachusetts, and is on both the Research Team and the Natural Solutions Working Group of Elders Climate Action. She has been researching and growing native plants for over ten years.
