WSU Extension Clark County Master Gardeners and Clark County Public Health are teaming up to present a free workshop that will help you bring all sorts of wild creatures into your yard, from bats to birds to bees to butterflies and possibly even bunnies—all of which are extremely beneficial to the health of your garden. At “Gardening with Wildlife,” Clark County Master Gardeners will teach you ways to make your landscape inviting to local wildlife. After the presentation, participants will help assemble habitat structures—bird and bat boxes—for placement at a nearby park. Bring gloves if you have them!
The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 22, at the Luke Jensen Sports Complex at 4000 N.E. 78th St. in Vancouver. The workshop will be held in the Bud van Cleve Community Room. No registration is necessary and children ages 8 and older are welcome to attend with their parents.
