Berlin-Peck Memorial Library and the Berlin Land Trust are teaming up to “Help Your Yard Get A Little Wilder.”
In a Thursday, April 29 webinar, neuroscientist Susan Masino and naturalist Margery Winters will share simple changes you can start making that will be good for you and for the birds, bees, and other creatures that call Connecticut home.
During the webinar, Masino and Winters will also detail their experience collaborating on Simsbury’s Open Space Master Plan to ensure the long-term health and integrity of their town. Also, they will leave plenty of time for questions and link attendees to helpful resources. The program will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Get in the Arbor Day spirit by learning about the benefits of a more natural world ― and how we can make our own yards and towns more natural.
Register for the webinar on the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library website, berlinpeck.org, or by calling the library at 860-828-7125. The Berlin Land Trust will post links for buying native plants, shrubs and trees on its website, berlinlandtrust.org.
The webinar is part of the land trust’s ongoing work to help people learn about, nurture and protect our natural environment.
The all-volunteer Berlin Land Trust was established in 1988 by a group of citizens concerned about the quickly disappearing open space fields, wetlands, and woodlands in Berlin and surrounding towns.
The land trust’s committees develop educational programs, monitor zoning and land use decisions, and work on specific land acquisition projects.
