    If you’ve heard that using native plants in your yard helps improve the environment for everyone, but are not sure why or how to do that, this series of webinars brings you up to speed on ways to turn your home garden into a native-friendly, sustainable and resilient habitat for birds and other wildlife. Start with the big picture, presented by Dr. Douglas Tallamy, the scientist who has made the case for enhancing the environment with natives, then follow up with a series of webinars that delves deeper into the “how”.

    This virtual series is presented via Zoom.

    $10 covers the entire series. Attend each program or pick and choose your topics. Another series will be offered this fall to help you continue your efforts and prepare for the winter.

    Every team will have one team captain who will be your representative (and submit your team's answers). Submit your team by March 31 (include everyone's e-mail and your designated team captain), or request to be on a random team. Your teams will need their own way of communicating. We’ve found it’s easier to use two different platforms (Zoom on our end -- Google hangout, Facebook messenger, Facetime, etc. on your team's).
