Event description
NWF's David Mizejewski highlights Dallas's first ever Monarch Festival: Texas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park - Sat, Oct 19, 10:30 am

About this Event

One of the joys of gardening is creating a beautiful, natural space that both you and the local birds, butterflies and bees can enjoy. Join National Wildlife Federation naturalist and TV host David Mizejewski for a fun and informative talk on creating wildlife-friendly gardens based on his award-winning book Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife, Expanded Second Edition.

David will cover each of the four components of habitat -- food, water, shelter and places to raise young -- explaining each and sharing tips, ideas, and projects that you can implement in their own garden. He’ll discuss about the role of native plants in the garden and why wildlife depend upon them, and offer tips for sustainable gardening practices. David will show you how you can have your garden recognized as an official “Certified Wildlife Habitat” with the National Wildlife Federation.

Note: This event is free with paid admission to Texas Discovery Gardens. State Fair of Texas admission and parking fees apply to festival-goers.
