When Your Nearest Neighbors Aren’t Human: Gardening in the Air

When Your Nearest Neighbors Aren’t Human: Gardening in the Air
Event Date(s)


Whether you live in a small community or a larger urban setting, wildlife is a part of your everyday life, but some species may wear out their welcome. These animals have adapted to be your neighbor because humans have the tendency to provide exactly what they need. Others need our help to survive due to the pressures of a forever-changing environment. Learn how to enhance and coexist with wildlife on your property as well as the legalities for removing animals.

Register online by January 27.
