Creating Wildlife-friendly Backyards

with Linda Woodard

Bringing Nature Back Home!

Transform your backyard to sustain wildlife by using native plants, water elements, habitat restoration, and food sources. Consider ways to transition part of your lawn to attract and accommodate birds, bats, frogs, bees, butterflies, and many other beneficial creatures and pollinators. Studies show that even a modest increase in native plant cover on suburban properties greatly increases the diversity of insects, birds, and other animals. Native plants feed native bird species either directly with fruits and seeds or indirectly by supporting native insects birds can eat. Grab your neighbor and amplify your impact by creating essential wildlife corridors in your neighborhood.

Tuition includes a starter kit and a video on growing native plants.

As of 3/9/22: 3-foot distancing required, masking optional.

Linda Woodard, an avid bird watcher, has been Director of the Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center for 18+ years. She has taught high school biology, bird watching, marsh ecology, and a wide variety of environmental topics.
