Conservation starts at home! Learn how to transform your corner of the earth into an ecofriendly haven for native flora and fauna. We'll cover how ecosystems work, habitat resiliency, climate change, invasive species, biodiversity, and the ecological importance of human managed landscapes. You'll leave with the ability to read your landscape and select and maintain plants for long-term ecosystem health.
Now you too can create a wildlife sanctuary at your home; perfect for beginning and experienced gardeners. Each topic will include an online presentation, two weeks to complete optional activities, and a follow-up session for discussion and questions before the next presentation.
