If you want to get serious about building a backyard wildlife garden, but don’t know where to start – we’ve got you covered! Join us for this inaugural series of classes that will take you step-by-step through the process of planning, planting, and maintaining a backyard wildlife habitat that meets National Wildlife Federation certification standards. We’ll meet once per month to learn the different aspects of a good wildlife garden, including personalized tips for your unique space. You’ll take those lessons and put them into practice throughout the month. By the end of the series, you will be ready for official certification and will receive your own Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat sign!
