Rewilding Talks Series: Plant Native Trees to Support Local Food Webs

Planted around homes and businesses, in parks and public open spaces, along city streets and highway margins and even in parking lot islands, native trees offer countless benefits beyond their four-season beauty––purifying air, shading and cooling in hot weather, storing atmospheric carbon, minimizing flooding and stormwater runoff and helping to sustain vital pollinators, birds and other wildlife. In this one-hour online talk, Anna Fialkoff will teach the why, what, and how of planting native trees to rewild our landscapes.

About the Rewilding Series:
Wild Seed Project’s Pledge to Rewild initiative is a call-to-action, motivating people to plant natives to support bees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife in order to make positive environmental change in their own communities. Maine Audubon and Wild Seed Project are teaming up to bring you a three-part series that goes in-depth on some of the key concepts of rewilding: transforming your lawn into layers of native plants, adopting mindful landscape practices that benefit wildlife and the planet’s health, and planting native trees that support local food webs.

Winter Pruning Workshop – In-Person

Gilsland Farm 20 Gilsland Farm Rd, Falmouth

Winter Pruning with Anna FialkoffWith leaves down and the bones of the garden revealed, winter is a great time to evaluate and prune native trees and shrubs for their structure, form, health and vigor. Plus, frozen ground and hibernating wildlife ensure little disturbance to birds and insects while tromping around planting beds. Join Wild Seed Project program manager Anna Fialkoff for a two-hour pruning workshop at Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm in Falmouth. Start in the classroom with an overview of basic pruning principles and tools, then head out into the garden for demonstration and hands-on experience.
