The Woodland Park Zoo (750 N 50th St) is offering a series of five classes this spring to show you the ins and outs of turning your backyard, schoolyard or community garden into healthy habitat for wildlife.
Learn from experts from Seattle Audubon, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Washington Native Plant Society and Woodland Park Zoo about how to attract birds and other wildlife to your backyard, select and care for native plants, recognize and remove invasive plants species, coexist peacefully with the wildlife you attract, conserve water, manage your backyard without the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides, place feeders and bird houses, and get your yard certified as a Backyard Habitat.
The series of five classes runs March 2 through April 26, 2011. The cost is $25 per person, per class or $100 per person for the full, five-part series if you register before 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2011.
Classes are designed to build on each other as a series, but may also be taken separately.
Registration closes one week before each class. If there is still space available after registration closes, drop-in registrations will be accepted the night of class. Drop-in classes are $30 each. To inquire about space availability, contact the Individual Registration Specialist at 206.548.2424 or individual.registration [at] zoo.org.
