Free Webinar: Building a Community Wildlife Habitat (Sept 27)

Roxanne Paul who coordinates the Community Wildlife Habitat program will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday, September 27th about how your neighorhood, town or community can get started on Creating a Community Wildlife Habitat. [Austin is already a certified community habitat, but it would be neat to get others to follow suit, such as your friends in other nearby towns or anywhere in the US!]

A community wildlife habitat is the largest designation we have for certification.  Community members work together to certify homes, schools, business and public spaces (based on their population size) and also complete various projects of their choicing.  Achieving certification – is a great recognition that your community – is not only wildlife friendly but commitment to “greening” their community for the citizen and wildlife alike.  It is taking a Tree City USA designation to the next level.

If this sounds interesting, please attend this FREE 1-hour webinar to learn more. If this time is inconvenient for you, within 2 weeks the recorded webinar will be available for viewing. Please share this widely with anyone in the United States.
