We will also learn how to encourage or in some cases discourage wildlife in gardens including birds, insects, bats, raccoons, squirrels, possums, and deer. Class will consist of lectures, hands-on work and field trips to a variety of local urban homesteads, farms, and natural areas.Visit Event Website >>
