Backyard Conservation Education Series
The Backyard Conservation Workshop Series is designed to increase the skills and knowledge base of all landowners from small city lots to larger rural properties. The Backyard Series introduces Washtenaw residents to a broad series of topics from planning for conservation, building healthy soils, landscaping with native plants, water conservation and rain catchment systems, tree planting and maintenance and more. Topics for Backyard Workshop Series are gathered through input from an advisory committee made up of residents and volunteers as well as at the Annual Meeting.
