Helping wildlife thrive will be the topic at Rye Driftwood Garden Club’s January program, “A Garden for Wildlife.” Sue Mayotte, a presenter for the UNH Extension Services’ Speakers Bureau, will discuss how anyone with a backyard, garden, or landscaped area can help wildlife by altering their landscaping and gardening practices. It includes a discussion of wildlife and habitats, plant choices, use of native plants, nest boxes, feeders, and invasive plants. The program starts at 10 am, Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at the Rye Congregational Church, 580 Washington Road, Rye NH.
Mayotte has been a Natural Resource Steward with the University of New Hampshire since 2017. She has served as a Volunteer Coordinator for the New Hampshire State Forest Nursery seedling harvest and also participated in the New Hampshire Coverts Project through UNH Extension Service which trains volunteers in wildlife conservation, forest stewardship, and effective outreach. In addition, she is a member of the Joint Continuing Education Committee for the NH Master Gardeners.
