8:30AM - 10:30AM

Discover how you can better attract our local animals to your home garden using native plants and natural features. Be prepared for a morning of walking and standing while Stephanie Ranes leads this hands-on class in various sections of the Garden. The class will meet at the redwood bench near the entrance.

Participants will need to bring sun protection and a water bottle, and wear comfortable walking shoes. A notebook and pen will be handy items to bring to take notes.
