This post is for everyone, but particularly for my Naturally Beautiful Backyards clients.
Our local Wildlife Botanical Gardens will be offering a class on Landscaping for Wildlife on January 16, 2016. I have not heard this speaker before, but I have read the book she will be referencing. The book and its information are all part of Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website which I reference for helping you create good habitat.
In my practice, the habitat I encourage most is for birds and pollinators because I feel it most closely aligns with what urban and suburban residents can easily do to orchestrate a landscape that also positively benefits the watershed. Clean water is essential not only for people, but for critters and plants of all shapes and sizes. Many people don’t want deer, raccoon, squirrels, etc on their property for a variety of reasons. But most people can embrace birds, butterflies, and bees.
So if you want to help keep our watershed clean, and enjoy birds and pollinators up close and personal, attend this class. If you don’t have the time. The book is in our library, and much of the teaching from the book is at the WDFW website.
