Join the Xerces Society and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council to talk about providing residential landscapes as habitat for invertebrates. Please join us! 

Populations of many invertebrate species are declining, but home gardeners can play an important role in their conservation as yards are well positioned to provide habitat for these species in residential landscapes. We will talk about why these creatures are important and how to create invertebrate habitat year-round at home. We will also touch on the risks pesticides pose to invertebrates at home and across the broader urban landscape (including urban waterways).
