WALDOBORO — Though Midcoast Conservancy often focuses on protecting large swaths of intact forests and wetlands, no piece of land is too small to be valuable wildlife habitat. All are invited to attend a Rewilding Learning Fair on Sunday, June 12, from 3-5 p.m., in Waldoboro, to discover how they can transform their lawn, garden, or porch into a thriving landscape that provides a home to birds, bees, butterflies, and other native species. The benefits of rewilding a space extends beyond its beauty; a yard full of native plants improves water quality, reverses habitat loss, and mitigates climate change.
“Whether someone has never heard of rewilding before or has already rewilded their yard, this event has something for everyone!” said Midcoast Conservancy, in a news release.
Learn about invasive plant identification and removal, landscaping with wildlife in mind, erosion control and its impacts on water quality, and gardening with native plants.
Learning stations will be set up along the very short loop trail at Waldoboro Village River Park, and attendees are encouraged to explore at their own pace. The trail is a slightly sloped, mowed path through a field. Parking is available at the trailhead, and throughout downtown Waldoboro.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early for a chance to win native seed packets and build a free bee hotel.
This event is free to attend, and registration is not required.
