FREE CLASS- Gardening For Wildlife View Calendar
Date: Saturday, September 12, 2015 At 10:00:00 AM
 

Kelly Conrad Simon, Urban Wildlife Biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, presents "Gardening for Wildlife."

Would you like a more lively landscape? A yard with butterflies, birds, frogs, and lizards is much more interesting, fun, and healthier than a sterile one. The Texas Wildscapes program was developed by Texas Parks and Wildlife in 1995 to assist Texans in creating landscapes that are both visually appealing and attractive to appropriate wildlife. By providing the elements of habitat (food, shelter, and water) in their gardens, Texans can attract an exciting variety of benign and beneficial critters, and bring the beauty and vitality of nature home. This program is appropriate for any audience. Having survived the Bastrop Complex fire along with her family and friends, Kelly also provides unique insight into landscaping in the burn zone and creating Wildscape landscapes that are also Fire Wise. She has been with Texas Parks and Wildlife since 1995 and is the author of Texas Wildscapes: Gardening for Wildlife. She earned her BA in 1992 at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, and her MS degree in 1995 at Emporia State University in Kansas.

Except where noted, classes are held on Saturday mornings at 10am and are about 1 hour long. Classes are subject to change. Please call first to confirm. Classes are held outdoors under an open air canopy - The Revival Tent - please dress for the weather. Arrive early for best seating. You are welcome to bring your own chair. If possible, please park on Bell Drive, adjacent to the Tent.
