Grow Native Webinar Series

Recurring event see all

April 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

If you’ve heard that using native plants in your yard helps improve the environment for everyone, but are not sure why or how to do that, this series of webinars brings you up to speed on ways to turn your home garden into a native-friendly, sustainable and resilient habitat for birds and other wildlife. Start with the big picture, presented by Dr. Douglas Tallamy, the scientist who has made the case for enhancing the environment with natives, then follow up with a series of webinars that delves deeper into the “how”.

This virtual series is presented via Zoom.

$10 covers the entire series. Attend each program or pick and choose your topics. Another series will be offered this fall to help you continue your efforts and prepare for the winter.
