The Audubon At Home program is about homeowners creating healthy, wildlife habitats in their own yards and neighborhoods. Additionally, conservative measures and sustainable gardening practices, such as planting native species, removing invasive plants, reducing or eliminating pesticide use, conserving water, and preventing erosion are encouraged. Click on athome.audubon.org for information about how to accomplish a healthy, bird, butterfly, wildlife attracting yard.
The San Fernando Valley Audubon Society Committee Chair for the Audubon At Home program is Alan Pollack. If you are in reasonable driving distance from the San Fernando Valley, he is available to consult with you on how to make your yard a healthy, wildlife friendly one. He can provide a free landscape design for you to use as a guide if you are a do-it-yourself gardener or to give to your landscape contractor.
Alan also is available to give his PowerPoint slide show/lecture on restoring habitat, How to Attract Birds and Butterflies to your Garden, to any group that is interested. There is no fee involved.
Alan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-340-2347.
