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.

Vermicomposting (worm composting); Turn Your Garbage into Gold

August 17, 2019
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Presented by Capt. Brigg Franklin, Coast Guard Officer & Instructor Master Worm Wrangler & Bee Herder at the Wildlife Botanical Gardens

Do you know what kinds of food and bedding worms prefer? Learn how to make your own simple worm composting bin using the right kind of worms and where you can get them for free. Your worm stock can then be herded from the finished compost to new fresh bedding. Find out how the fertilizer rich compost material can be used. A demonstration worm bin will be constructed during the class which you can take home if you win the drawing to be held at the end of the class!
