Event Date(s)


When designed with the basics of wildlife habitat in mind, the places people live can make enriching places for wildlife, too. Dr. Adam Janke will discuss the basics of making any landscape – from city lots to rural farmsteads and everything in between – work to make a difference for birds.

Register online by January 27.
