Backyard Biology! Our Final Spring Session–Tuesday, May 21

Tuesday, May 21, 2:00-3:30pm or 6:30-8:00pm

Creating wildlife habitats in your yard provides food, water, shelter, and nesting sites for a variety of organisms. The photo exhibit is an introduction  to the Backyard Biology workshop, where we will investigate a few of the ecological processes that take place everyday to sustain the cycles of life. Activities include reading tree rings, observing how plants breathe, analyzing feathers, comparing the genetics of black & wild type gray squirrels, making seed balls, and methods of journaling. Participants always bring lots of questions, info, fun and laughter.

This is our popular series of workshops with our trainee Master Naturalists helping us learn about the natural world around us. Presenters Pat Milliken and Gil Pielin are retired high school teachers.
