“Go Native” in your backyard

Written by 

“From Mowing to Growing,” a workshop with Sara Martin, a biology instructor at Haywood Community College with a B.A. in wildlife management, is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, as part of the Great Smoky Mountains Audubon Society summer program and event schedule.

A main goal of the Audubon society is to help the community create and preserve an appropriate habitat for butterflies, dragonflies, flying squirrels, bees and more in their own backyards.

The “From Mowing to Growing” workshop will focus on transforming a backyard into a habitat of native flowers and plants. Martin will help participants “go native,” so they should bring a photograph of their backyard, as well as a notebook, pen and packed lunch to the event.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Maggie Pavilion and costs $20.
