The public is invited to join them at the Southborough Library on Tuesday, June 18th at 7:00 pm:

The plants we choose to put around our homes and how we maintain them can make a big difference in helping our native wildlife. Learn best practices for a beautiful, healthy yard that supports birds, pollinators, and other wildlife.

Following the Audubon presentation, the Open Space Preservation Commission will review their Native Plant * Native Pollinator Initiative and roll out the new Southborough Community Wildlife Habitat Community Certification as part of the National Wildlife Federation Program.

Wrapping up the evening will be a Panel of representatives from local organizations discussing ways they are working to provide Healthy Backyard Habitats.

Not sure if anyone from Open Space reads this blog but if so, it would be wonderful if the presentation could be stored online. I can’t attend Tuesday night but am very interested.
