“A Garden for Wildlife” at the Leach Library

On Thursday, April 16 at 7:00 p.m., the Leach Library will host the program “A Garden for Wildlife: Natural Landscaping for a Better Backyard”. This program will be presented by Sigrid Salmela, a trained volunteer from the UNH Cooperative Extension’s ‘Speaking for Wildlife’ project. 
Ms. Sigrid Salmela is a former professional gardener who currently volunteers with the “Speaking for Wildlife” project. In this presentation, audience members will learn how anyone can modify a backyard, garden, or landscaped area to help wildlife by altering their landscaping and gardening practices. Ms. Salmela will also discuss wildlife and habitats, plant choice, use of native plants, nest boxes and feeders, and other topics such as invasive plants.
The “Speaking for Wildlife” project is a volunteer effort of the UNH Cooperative Extension. Volunteers are trained to give public talks in their communities on wildlife, habitats, sound land stewardship, and other natural history topics. Support for the program comes from a variety of agencies. 
This program is free and open to the public with seating limited to the first 90 individuals. It will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
