For the second year in a row, the Nature Conservancy of Canada will be featuring a native garden outside of the model cottage, showcasing native plants, flowers, shrubs and trees perfect for the cottage.
On the mainstage come hear Mhairi McFarlane, Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) conservation science manager for NCC's Ontario Region present on Small Acts of Conservation, focusing on the benefits of incorporating native plants at the cottage.
Visit the NCC booth to learn more about using native plants to retain your cottage shoreline, attract birds and pollinators and accent your areas more naturally. The plants and wildlife around your cottage are part of what defines cottage country and makes your place special. By learning about nature at the cottage, we can help protect it for our children and grandchildren.
Don’t forget to test your native flora knowledge to be entered for a chance to win a privately guided tour of one of Nature Conservancy of Canada’s propertoes.
