Learn to create habitat around your home at the Hood River Watershed Group’s upcoming Backyard Habitat Workshop on Saturday, June 13 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
While touring local backyards, native plant cultivator and nursery operator Drew Merritt, wildlife biologist and gardener Cathy Flick, landscape architect Jurgen Hess, and gardener Sheila Ford Richmond will cover techniques for creating habitat on-the-ground, managing water on your property, and the benefits of backyard habitat for both landowners and birds, pollinators, and other wildlife.
