Backyard Stewardship Workshop Set For Sept. 29 In Chester County

PA Audubon is hosting a Backyard Stewardship Workshop on September 29 starting at 9:30 a.m.  at the Schuylkill Township Building in Phoenixville, Chester County.

Schuylkill Township is a Pennsylvania Bird Town. The workshop is part of the program. “Bird Town is a working partnership of Audubon and municipalities in Pennsylvania to promote conservation and community-based actions to create a healthy, more sustainable environment for birds and people.”

Birds are a good indicator of our environmental health, because we see and hear them every day. This is a program to create a culture of conservation and help us all become better stewards of our backyards and community lands.

Why should you attend? Because you will learn a lot about transforming your own backyard into a sustainable native habitat; you will receive a 320 page reference book; you will meet like-minded people who care about our environment; and you will learn ways to save money. Not to mention, you will have fun!

The cost for the program is $55 which includes textbook, notebook, course, light morning fare, lunch, and 1 or 2 backyard site visits, dates to be determined.
