Seminar Topic: Landscaping for Birds, Pollinators, and Other Wildlife

Date & Time: March 30, 2:30pm

Learn ways to cultivate habitat for local declining populations of birds, pollinators, and more. In this engaging and informative session, Deb makes a compelling case for how you can “conserve wildlife right where you are” – by providing adequate food, water, and shelter in your gardens, yards, and beyond. Topics include the nuts and bolts of how to build backyard habitat for birds, wild bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, specifically. Join us on an ecological journey that will leave you feeling inspired and ready to plant for wildlife this season!
