Butler workshop to explore benefits of welcoming wildlife

January 6, 2019 by  

Wildlife can add motion and life to a property, and this connection with nature can provide many other benefits as well. The DCNR Bureau of Forestry is offering a free morning of learning in Butler that explores the different ways owners of properties of any size can make wildlife feel welcome, and everyone is encouraged to attend.

At least four different presenters will be included in the lineup for the occasion, and the topics covered will range from how to choose deer-resistant native plants, to giving native bees, butterflies and other pollinators a helping hand. The keynote address will be given by Ellen Shultzabarger, who is a State Forester and Director of the Bureau of Forestry, and she will be discussing the value that comes with interacting with nature.

The schedule for the morning starts at 8:00 am, and the presentations and other programming will run until 12:30 pm. Copies of handouts, brochures and other learning materials can help those who register for an event like this to get the most from their time, and these can be provided to the organizers by an area printing services company.

‘Making the Most of Your Piece of Nature’ will be offered to the public on February 23rd. Anyone who would like to find out more can find additional details on its online listing.
