"Bringing Nature Home" in Springvale

Free

with Eric Topper

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 10, 2020 at 6 pm

Join Maine Audubon's director of education Eric Topper for a live webinar about the plants, practices, and perks of restoring ecology in our gardens, yards, and communities.  We will describe the work of Maine Audubon's native plants restoration and community engagement program called "Bringing Nature Home," based on the bestselling book of that title by Dr. Doug Tallamy.

This free program is second in a three-part series hosted by Springvale Public Library.  The program will focus entirely on our intended work and collaboration in Springvale, and will include an opportunity for several of our partners to share and discuss their goals and plans.  While others are welcome, our primary hope is to raise awareness in and around the Springvale-Sanford area.

A secure Zoom link will be shared with registrants via email on the day of the program.
