This series can also provide continuing education to Extension Master Gardeners, Michigan Conservation Stewards, Master Naturalists, and generally anyone looking for ways to enhance their property to create a sanctuary for nature out their back door.

Grab your lunch and join us as we explore together ways to enhance our yards, gardens, and land to protect and enhance backyard wildlife. The Wild About Woods, Wetlands, & Wildlife will be held every two weeks on Wednesdays starting June 9 at 12PM ET. Each online seminar will feature an MSU Extension professional to present on a topic in their area of expertise. Learn how to enhance and change your yard to become a small sanctuary for wildlife.
