Create wildlife habitat on your property!

As a steward of your land, there are easy actions you can take to create a wildlife-friendly environment. Spend the day exploring riparian and forested ecosystems with a group of local experts and learn more about enhancing your land for wildlife including native bird, bat, beaver, and pollinator populations. We’ll discuss nest boxes, wetland maintenance, native plantings, habitat piles, bird friendly homeowner practices and more! 

This program is presented on behalf of Washington State University Extension and Washington State Dept. of Natural Resources, this is an event you won’t want to miss!
