Become a Backyard Naturalist

April 7, 2024

Learn from Steve Lewis, chair of the Greater Hartford Sierra Club, how you can transform your property by planting native plants, focusing on biodiversity, and removing invasive species. Steve’s presentation will highlight the important work of entomologist and wildlife ecologist, Doug Tallamy.  Steve will discuss habitat certifications; mobile apps to help with bird, insect, and plant identification; and contributions you can make to citizen science. He also will cover The Pollinator Pathway Initiative, No-Mow May, lawns to meadows, and water features. Steve “walks the walk” — his own yard is a model for enhancing the backyard experience. Yours can be too! No registration required. Free -- in lieu of fee, promise to plant a new native species in your yard!
