If you aren't in awe of nature, you aren't paying attention.
Prepare for an adventure that will bring you beauty, peace and wonder. Join Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK), a chapter of the NC Wildlife Federation, for a two part series on creating a haven for wildlife that will introduce you to the natural world surrounding us.
On March 3, HAWK President and Habitat Steward, Carol Buie-Jackson will present how to provide the four critical elements wildlife need to survive and thrive as Part One of the Creating a Backyard Wildlife Habitat series. Whether your habitat is a small courtyard, a large plantation, or something in between, attendees will learn the fundamentals of providing food, water, shelter and places to raise young for a variety of our native wildlife. We will also discuss sustainable gardening practices, the importance of planting with native plants, soil and water stewardship, reducing lawn size and reducing chemical usage to ensure your habitat is a healthy place for the wildlife that live among us.
On April 7, Landscape Designer and Habitat Steward, Mary Bures will continue this series with Part Two, Site Analysis and Plant Selection, when she presents how to work with nature to create a wildlife habitat that is low maintenance, supports wildlife and meets the needs of you and your family while going beyond your greatest expectations in providing sensual awareness and awe and wonder where you once found work and hassle! Mary's interest in the outdoors and nature has always been a part of her life and she enjoys helping others see, appreciate, understand and value the beauty and wonder of our natural world and believes when someone understands and values something, they are better able to care for and protect it.
