Extensive urban growth over the last few decades has had a significant impact on habitat that birds and other wildlife once called home. You, as a homeowner, have a unique opportunity to curtail this loss of habitat by creating your own backyard wildlife sanctuary.

NatureScaping of Southwest Washington is a non-profit, all volunteer, educational organization whose goal is to educate and encourage homeowners to make their yards and gardens a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife.

Membership above the $20 level will support maintaining the gardens fencing, irrigation, educational materials and more.

Urban Mammals of the PNW

November 16, 2019
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Presented by Brandon Burger, Backyard Bird Shop

Did you know that the Gray Squirrel which we see nearly every day in our yards and neighborhoods along with the rabbits and racoons is not our native squirrel? Have you ever wondered why some years there are rabbits everywhere you look, but other years you see almost none? In this presentation we will talk about the mammals that share our beautiful slice of the world; some common to our yards and others that live only a short trip away. We'll touch on some habitat improvement you can make to your yard to encourage diversity.

Native Mason Bees

December 21, 2019
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Presented by Brigg Franklin, Master Composter/Recycler and Mason Beekeeper

Join us for what has become our annual Mason Bee experience! Did you know Mason Bees are one of about 4000 native North American bees, without which most of our fruits and vegetables would not produce. You will see how easy it is to attract and maintain these important pollinators in your yard. Learn about the bees and then get hands-on experience as we will also be cleaning cocoons for our plant sale in the spring. In exchange go home with some of your very own bee cocoons!
