In conjunction with our Linking Landscapes Initiative, the Conservancy is promoting 2015 as the Year of the Backyard, and creating a calendar of events, field trips, and workshops relating to the world of our home habitat. We will be partnering with other local organizations and businesses to create opportunities to educate, cooperate, and make available the tools and resources for anyone who wishes to learn about using gardening and landscaping to create habitat for wildlife. Every backyard, town park, school, church, and office landscape has the potential to grow food and shelter for butterflies, bees, songbirds, and the wider variety of insects that serve as the foundation of the food chain for many other animals. The Year of the Backyard will be an opportunity to reach out to folks in the many communities in our service area.
