Backyard Habitat Workshop - September 22
The District Department of the Environment is partnering with Audubon Maryland-DC and the Audubon At Home program to offer FREE educational workshops in which participants can learn about creating wildlife habitat in their yard. We would like to invite you to register for one of our backyard habitat workshops, which are being held in September and October of 2012.
The title of this workshop is Edible Native Plants to Attract Pollinators. Participants will plant a demonstration garden that is designed around different themes. Workshops will be themed on a rare wildlife habitat that is found in the District. These workshops will feature an additional presentation about the plants and geology that make the habitat unique, and a demonstration garden that features plants found in that community.
Participants will plant a demonstration garden and will receive a "habitat kit" with books, literature, a birdhouse and live plants. Program sessions are based on availability and usually run about six hours.
