You’ve moved to the foothills partly because you enjoy seeing the interactions of the wildlife in your area, but how do you get them to come to your property for a close-up view? Sierra Wildlife Rescue will hold a class on Oct. 20 on “Creating Wildlife Habitat in Your Yard,” from 1 to 3 p.m., taught by Master Gardener and SWR rehabber Judy Thompson. Learn about the wide variety of plants that will attract birds, butterflies, and other animals, as well as other features you can introduce into your landscaping to attract and nourish wildlife. You will also learn how your yard can become a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat.
All classes are taught at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Rd, in Placerville. Parking is limited, so please make reservations. For all classes, contact Barbara at 530-621-2650, or e-mail at [email protected] If you are unable to attend a class you registered for, please notify us, as there is usually a waiting list. Classes are free to SWR Members; a $5 donation is requested from the general public, or you can become a supporting member and contribute to the care of over 1,200 orphaned and injured wild animals annually rehabbed by SWR.
