How do you plan to protect and connect with nature this year? The final event of our Connect With Nature Habitat Hero webinar series will focus on cultivating yards that are better for people, animals, and the environment!

Join us and Sunday on Tuesday, March 7 for "Changing the Lawn Landscape," a webinar on changing the lawn landscape to be healthier and easier to care for. Sunday offers a new kind of lawn care, recognizing that yards are valuable spaces for people and the planet. With lawns making up over 40 million acres of land across the United States, helping people transition to healthier practices has a big impact on ecosystems. Join Sunday Natural Scientist Paige Boyle and Sunday Natural Science Manager Teri Valenzuela for a discussion on why yards matter, how we can work together to change the lawn landscape, and the new ways Sunday is supporting wild birds!
