A BACKYARD HABITAT GARDEN is a place where birds, butterflies, bees, toads, and other little creatures can find food, water, cover, and a place to raise their young; a place where there are no pesticides or herbicides used that would be unhealthy for these creatures or for you. Native plants provide unmatched habitat value because these plants and critters depend on each other for food, water and shelter. It’s a place that’s full of life from hummingbirds to bees and lizards to toads —a very exciting place to be!
Hilltop’s week long camp will focus on the basic of creating, growing and maintain a natural garden that will provide children with a healthy outdoor experience where they can play, learn, and develop a genuine respect for nature. Pollinators are significant to habitat gardening because they often have wings! Winged pollinators can and will travel long distances to seek out reliable nectar sources, so gardening to attract hummingbirds and other pollinators is particularly rewarding. If you build it, they will come! Each child will receive a “A Habitat Garden To Go” which will include Louisiana meadow plants and seeds, a recycled water garden and shelters for birds, toads and frogs.
