Gardening for Wildlife
26 May 2018, 11:00 - 12:00 (Add to calendar)
Leading UK environmentalist, a Vice President of the Wildlife Trusts and award winning writer and broadcaster, Chris Baines will talk about the importance of gardens for wildlife.
He will share his lifetime’s experience of the practical ways in which ordinary gardens can be made more wildlife friendly, discuss suitable plants for pollinators and the many in which nesting boxes, bird feeders, ponds and many other features can turn your garden, courtyard or balcony into a safe haven for local wildlife. He will also show the ways in which gardens are contributing to conservation across the wider landscape.
Chris Baines is a leading environmental advisor to industry and government, a broadcaster and prizewinning writer. He created the very first wildlife garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in 1985 and he has been a National Vice President of the Wildlife Trusts for more than 30 years. He was awarded the RSPB medal of honour in 2004.
The talk will be fully illustrated and will last for an hour, including time for questions, and Chris will also be selling signed copies of his best-selling book “The RHS Companion to Wildlife Gardening”.
There will also be a raffle in support of Cheshire Wildlife Trust.
