Backyard garden at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden

Behind our interpretive centre is a "model" backyard garden. It is designed with mostly native plants, but we have used non-native species which we know are beneficial to wildlife, such as several species of thyme. The different sections of the garden have different purposes, for example the Woodland Walk shows which locally native species will grow well in shaded conditions, and it also shows how it is possible to create a garden that replicates in some sense, a natural woodland in this part of eastern Ontario.
