Creating Native Habitat Gardens and Conservation Practices at Home
This workshop aims to inspire conservation practices at home through increasing awareness of our local native pollinators, their importance to our everyday lives, and their interdependent relationships with native plants and habitat features. The presentation will include best management practices (BMPs) for creating and managing habitat gardens at home to support conservation stewardship practices. This includes actions for site preparation, plant material selection, and long-term management.
The workshop will include a live Q & A session to address specific questions and provide assistance with individual efforts.
