SacramentoValley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society
Invite You to a Special Presentation and Hands-on Workshop
Welcoming Nature to Your Yard with Native Plants
Less water, less pollution from lawn mowers, more bird habitat…
A 45 minute Audubon at Home presentation covering the basics
followed by a 45 minute optional Native Plant Propagation Class
by Jennifer Hogan/ Melinda Rivasplata of the SVCNPS
Learn which native plants are best for our area, how to buy and plant them, and why planting natives is good for everyone! Bird populations are in decline as suitable habitat continues to be lost to development, forestry, agricultural, and other land uses. With 2.1 million acres converted to residential use each year, how you landscape and maintain your yard can make a difference for bird conservation and environmental health. You and your family can enhance your enjoyment of your property by making it a more welcoming place for birds and a more balanced part of the natural community. Audubon At Home is about taking individual conservation action that can sustain birds, other wildlife, and healthy habitats in our yards and neighborhoods.
The Sacramento Valley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society will offer a hands–on Propagation Class following the Audubon at Home Presentation. Learn how to propagate natives that attract birds and other wildlife from cuttings and go home with several natives for your garden!
