November 9: Creating an Ideal Birdfeeding Station and a Backyard Bird Sanctuary

Fall is a great time to set up bird feeders. It allows the winter dwellers to become familiar with them before bad weather arrives and gives migratory birds much needed nutrition for their travels. Join Jacque Lowery, manager of Wild Birds Unlimited Nature stores in Moana Nursery and active Audubon Society member, and local birding guru and longtime Audubon Society member Alan Gubanich to learn about creating the ideal bird feeding station. They’ll discuss types of feeders and foods; placement of a birdfeeding station in your yard; how to keep a consistent source of water and how to indentify the many species that will show up in your yard.

November 16: Winter Containers

Join Moana Nursery’s Seasonal Planting Specialist Leslie Richardson for a demonstration of how to design and plant a winter container that will last thru December. Leslie has gardened in Vermont, Pennsylvania and Nevada and has extensive experience in residential landscaping — designing, installing, and maintaining container plantings, seasonal displays and perennial gardens.

Containers are her specialty; she loves trying out new plant combinations and getting people excited about their outdoor spaces. You can also see Leslie’s winter containers at The Summit after November 23rd. This seminar will be held at the Moana Lane store instead of in the Landscape and Design Center.

November 23: Holiday Decorating

Let us inspire you to create something natural and beautiful. Join our talented floral manager Shantel Smittle, who will show you how to decorate Christmas wreaths. Interior decorator and Moana gift buyer, Melody Arnold will demonstrate how to combine branches with ornaments and trinkets to create your own rustic elegance. Whether you paint the branches or leave them natural, branches can be embellished to add to your holiday decorating theme. Decorating with branches can be tailored to any home using a wide variety of ornaments and trinkets. This seminar will be held at the Moana Lane Store instead of in the Landscape and Design Center.

All seminars are free and held at Moana Nursery, 1190 W. Moana Lane, in our Landscape and Design Center unless otherwise stated. Seminars begin promptly at 10 a.m. and last one hour. Please arrive 15 minutes early as seating is limited to 60 and is first come, first served. Visit www.moananursery.com or call (775) 825-0602 for more information.
