Evenings with Audubon: Creating habitat for the health of our lakes, watersheds, & pollinators

  • Lussier Community Education Center 55 South Gammon Road Madison, WI, 53717 United States (map)

Free and open to the public!

Madison's lakes are in need of home owners and community members to take action and take care of them... from their own yards! John Shillinglaw will describe how folks can participate in protecting the Madison area watersheds by adding to habitat for pollinators, and provide ideas for ways you can make a real difference simply by managing your yard in watershed-friendly ways! Native gardening, composting, leaf management, and more. Plus, your watershed-friendly yard will look great and attracts lots of fun insects, birds, and other wildlife.
