Wildlife and Creating Habitat in Your Yard to Enhance Their Presence
with Suzi Cloutier
Join us as Suzi Cloutier teaches us about wildlife found in and around our yard and property, and the ways we can create habitat to enhance their presence in our environment. This will be presented using slides, and skulls, skins and nests for demonstration. Suzi will also share information on native plants that are suited for your landscape.
Suzi has been a lover of wildlife since she could crawl and had been known as the “critter fixer” as a little kid, as she gamely band aided worms back together that we caught in unfortunate gardening accidents. She received her degree in Wildlife Biology from the University of Rhode Island and has worked in the field of wildlife and the environment ever since. Currently, she works in her two biggest passions; running an equine sanctuary and teaching homeowners the joys of creating precious wildlife habitat in their own backyards!
April is also our Volunteer Appreciation Month and certificates will be awarded to Master Gardeners reaching their milestone hours.
Meetings are FREE to the public and members. No registration required.
