The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) weekly Virtual Speaker Series presented by LCEC continues on Tuesday, March 2 with “Reframing Our Perspective: Gardening in Southwest Florida” by Jenny Evans, Native Landscapes & Adult Education Director for Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation.
Our yards are often viewed as, simply, a way to improve the appearance of our homes. In this presentation, Jenny will discuss how your yard can be so much more while still being attractive, including being a place to conserve our natural resources and a refuge for local wildlife.
Virtual Speaker Series programs begin at 4:00pm and are approximately one hour in length. The talks will be presented using Zoom and are limited to 100 participants so advanced registration is required. Admission per device is $10 plus applicable taxes and fees. To register, please visit www.CROWClinic.org or CROW’s Facebook page under the “Events” tab.
