CREATING A
Backyard Wildlife Habitat

Learn to incorporate native plants into your landscape through site evaluation and how to place the right plant in the right place. Specific trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses and vines are discussed, along with how each plant interacts with nature and which wildlife they would support and attract. Learn how to identify invasive species growing on your property. This class is a combination of classroom instruction and observation of native plant installations in the Garden with native plant specialist and landscape designer Beth Farmer.

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are required for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. Non-vaccinated participants are also required to wear masks when outdoors and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distancing. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.
