"Backyard landscapes can provide valuable habitat for a variety of wildlife. You can enhance this home for birds, butterflies and other creatures using native vegetation and water features, while enjoying the benefits of color, cooling and sound," said Wyzga. The seminar will guide participants through the process of creating wildlife habitat using presentation and hands-on exercises. You'll learn wildlife habitat concepts, inventory techniques and plant selections. Bring a sketch map of your site to begin a plan for your yard.
