January 8. Meeting: “Design for Wildlife: How to Create Your Backyard Refuge.”

How do you design spaces that are appealing to both wildlife and the people who live there? Landscape Designer and writer Judith Phillips describes the basic steps in creating habitat either from a blank slate/no landscape or within existing gardens. Rainwater harvesting, layering plants for diversity: choosing the right plants for the site and combining them into attractive habitat hot spots, and managing the space through the seasons will be discussed.
