  • Create a Backyard Habitat
    Spring is coming soon - now is a great time to start planning your garden and landscape! This year, consider adding some wildlife habitat to your garden and yard. Creating a space for a variety of birds, insects and amphibians is not only fun and rewarding, but can provide many benefits to your yard, such as pollination and natural pest control. This virtual presentation offers many simple ways that you can add elements of wildlife habitat - such as native plantings, pollinator homes and other wildlife-friendly features. Let's look forward to spring!
