Plant Sale at Noon - Lecture at 1 pm
Promise of Spring Lecture:
Beautiful Landscapes for Pollinator & Wildlife Habitat
Lecture presented by James Gagliardi, Garden Director of the Bellevue Botanical Garden
Gardens can be an oasis for many pollinator and bird species. Join James Gagliardi as he shares stories of creating successful habitats and educating the public, while showing beautiful images of gardens where he's worked. During this presentation James will share plants you can use in your own garden to support a healthy ecosystem for wildlife.
Wildlife habitat was a particular focus of James when he served as the lead horticulturist at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. There he cared for the Pollinator Garden and led the design and installation of the Urban Bird Habitat. James served on a national Presidential taskforce to increase pollinator habitat around federal buildings. At Smithsonian Gardens he led the creation of an interpretive panel series The Pollination Investigation which he later travelled to Slovenia, Hungary, and Estonia to install in local botanical gardens as a guest of the US Embassies in those countries. The panels were also turned into a poster series that was distributed for free to 1,000 schools.
