Wildscape Ambassador 101 Workshop + Special Presentation by PPAN
Attend this special train-the-trainer workshop!
We will engage and train volunteers on spreading the word about actively restoring natural habitat for birds, butterflies, and other pollinators by implementing water-wise and native gardens on our landscapes. Come enjoy meeting other fellow gardeners and learning the tools of the trade to deliver a presentation to your local garden center/nursery, garden clubs, community center, HOAs and more on the importance of creating native plant gardens that not only create a welcome place for birds, but benefit the environment and our communities too!
