Register for a Backyard Habitat Workshop
The District Department of the Environment is partnering with Audubon Maryland-DC and the Audubon At Home program to offer FREE educational workshops in which participants can learn about creating wildlife habitat in their yard. We would like to invite you to register for one of our backyard habitat workshops, which are being held in September and October of 2012.
All of the workshops will cover the same general material, but participants will plant a demonstration garden that is designed around a different theme. Three workshops will be themed on a rare wildlife habitat that is found in the District. These workshops will feature an additional presentation about the plants and geology that make the habitat unique, and a demonstration garden that features plants found in that community.
