Creating a Backyard Buffet: Native Plants & Beyond (with MUD)
Location: Home ReSource Community Room (1515 Wyoming St, Missoula, MT 59801)
Loss of habitat means loss of food for many of our native Montana wildlife species. But the great news is that you can be part of the solution, right on your balcony or in your backyard! In this workshop, joined by fantastic guest speaker Claire Shady from Great Bear Native Plants, we’ll explore how to turn your space into a robust buffet for birds, bees, butterflies, and more, all year long. You’ll leave with a suet block (made by you) and an even deeper appreciation for our native plants! If that sounds like a blast, be sure to register here:
