As the days get longer, our local ecosystems wake up and show signs of life! Are you curious about starting or improving an existing garden for local pollinators and wildlife this spring? Join SPES Educator and lifelong gardener, Tamara Litke, to find out which plants to choose, where to find native species and how to plan your garden. Whether you have a large space or a balcony container garden, find out about local and national programs that support wildlife habitat. Native bees and insects rely on plant partnerships and humans can support these ancient relationships. We will review sources and plans to inspire you to grow with your local ecosystems in mind! 


Large or small, your own garden can be a healthy addition for our own ecosystems. Join us for our seasonal installments of “Gardening for Wildlife” to learn about which plants are helpful for creating habitat for bees, butterflies and birds. We will highlight plants, books and initiatives from BC, Canada and around the world. Gardens create pollinator corridors, migration route services and improve the urban landscape. You can make a difference in your own world!

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
