Brownbag on Landscaping for Wildlife

Thursday, September 6, 2018
12:00 pm1:00 pm
Jane Snyder Trail Center, 228 N 21st St. Lincoln

Mike Groenewold, horticulturist with Nebraska Game and Parks, will have tips for attracting wildlife to your yard. “Our yards are not just for our enjoyment, a wide range of wildlife depend on them for food and shelter.” With thoughtful design and planting, Groenewold said, they can offer better habitat for wildlife and far more interest and enjoyment for us as well.

Brownbag on the Winter Garden

Thursday, November 1, 2018
12:00 pm1:00 pm
Jane Snyder Trail Center, 228 N 21st St. Lincoln

Garden columnist Jan Riggenbach will offer suggestions for a garden to enjoy through the long winter months. “If we’re going to live in the Midwest where the garden is dormant almost half the time, we should devote more time to choosing plants with the off-season in mind,” she says. After moving from the country to the city, Riggenbach focused on plants with winter presence— evergreens, berried shrubs, grasses, plants with colorful bark, attractive seedheads and perennials that flower in the off-season. Her presentation will offer suggestions and beautiful photos of plants for the winter garden. This all-things-green brownbag is sponsored by Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, Lincoln Parks & Recreation, UNL Institute of Agriculture & Natural Resources and the Lincoln Downtown Association.
