Gardening for Wildlife in an Era of Climate Change with Trevor Smith

 

Presented by Lexington Living Landscapes, Lexington Field and Garden Club, and Cary Memorial Library

 

The evidence is clear: Climate change is here! The effects that scientists have long predicted are occurring and will intensify in coming years. What does this mean for our native flora and fauna? And what can one homeowner really do to mitigate a global crisis? Trevor Smith will take you past the bleak headlines and talk about what we CAN do. How our plant choices and simply changing the way we maintain our properties can make a meaningful difference for our local ecology. Trevor makes it clear that the power to slow or stop climate change does not rest solely in the hands of government. We can all make a difference. His presentation will leave you inspired and empowered to take action.

 

Trevor Smith is Design and Education Manager at Weston Nurseries in Massachusetts. He holds several landscape certifications and is a past President and a current Trustee of the Ecological Landscape Alliance. He is an award-winning regenerative landscape designer, specializing in green infrastructure, native plant design, habitat creation, and implementation of ecological design principles. He is passionate about the natural world which inspires his commitment to sustainable landscaping practices in an era of climate change.
