An "Evening With Experts" talk hosted by Grow Native Massachusetts

Please register in advance.

Fed up with your resident mix of rabbits, squirrels, and more?  Don’t throw in the trowel just yet! Based on her knowledge of plant resistance and tolerance strategies as well as animal behaviors and natural histories, Nancy Lawson, author of The Humane Gardener, offers a combination of strategies to help us co-exist, including mixtures of preferred and unpalatable species, strategic plantings along well-used pathways, and gentle exclusion techniques. Learn more here.

Nancy Lawson’s latest book is Wildscape: Trilling Chipmunks, Beckoning Blooms, Salty Butterflies, and other Sensory Wonders of Nature. A master naturalist and habitat consultant, she pioneers creative wildlife-friendly landscaping methods, and helped launch a community science project, Monarch Rx, based on scientific discoveries made in her own garden.
