Workshops/Presentations - Attend one of our workshops to learn wildscaping tips and techniques, how to attract wildlife in an urban environment, planting a Habitat Hero Demonstration Garden, and more!  These events are designed to appeal to both the new-to-the-scene gardener and veteran alike.

Youth Programs - Our goal is to connect young minds with nature and have them become the ultimate Junior Habitat Hero!  Activities are designed to spark a sense of curiosity of the world around them and to learn about the other creatures we share it with.

Community Plantings - Members of the community have the opportunity to lend a helping hand in shaping the place where they live by planting a  garden in an area of town that needs some sprucing up – whether a park or a roadway median.  We partner with city agencies, schools, nurseries, Home Owner Associations, Community Supported Agriculture programs, and other municipalities to plant Habitat Hero Demonstration Gardens that offer both environmental benefits and are aesthetically pleasing.

If your event or workshop is interested in learning about the importance of restoring our communities, one garden patch at a time, contact Habitat Hero Coordinator, Jamie Weiss at jweiss@audubon.org to be your presenter.  From a birds-eye view, learn how to create wildlife-friendly gardens that help combat the loss of open spaces and create green corridors that link your wildscape to larger natural areas by providing habitat for wildlife.  preview our educational menu of services to see how we can best serve your event needs.
