Do you want to increase the habitat value around your home?
Or perhaps you would like to plant a hedgerow for privacy that’s also wildlife-friendly?

Wauna Ave. You will learn about interesting beneficial bugs to be aware of, native plants that provide habitat, and specific considerations to for planning for hedgerows and landscaping.
