Native Plants to Attract Pollinators - a Workshop for Children and Parents

The District Department of the Environment and the Department of Parks & Recreation, in partnership with Audubon MD/DC, are presenting two free workshops that will teach children and parents about  creating wildlife habitat in their backyards.

The topic of the first workshop is Native Plants to Attract Pollinators and is scheduled for Thursday, July 7th from 9am – 1pm at Lederer Children's Garden, 4801 Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue, NE.

The second workshop is Thursday, July 14th from 1pm – 4pm at the Aboretum Recreation Center, 2412 Rand Place NE.

The two workshops will consist of presentations and hands-on activities. Participants will help plant a garden and  will receive books, literature, a birdhouse kit and  live plants to get them started in creating a wildlife habitat at home.

You can register online on the DDOE website.
