Wild About Jersey-Friendly Yards: Wild About Composting
September 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for our new 2020 Jersey-Friendly Yards Webinar Series and learn how to create healthy habitat for wildlife in your yard.
The Jersey-Friendly Yards website is designed to guide you through the steps to a healthier, more wildlife-friendly yard. Loss of natural habitat throughout the world has led to serious declines in populations of pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. By gardening for wildlife in our yards, we can help reverse this trend. As Dr. Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home and Nature’s Best Hope says, “Garden as if life depended on it.”

September 15: Wild About Composting
Compost and leaves are great resources for gardeners and provide an excellent source of food and shelter for animals. Sandra Blain-Snow will discuss how to invite a host of animals, birds and beneficial insects into your yard by recycling organic materials. Stop bagging leaves and taking them to the curb and start building a wildlife sanctuary in your Jersey Friendly Yard.
Presenter: Sandra Blain-Snow, Recycling Program Aide, Ocean County Department of Solid Waste Management
