Create a Habitat Tree: Demo at Leach Botanical Garden

Sat May 4 - 11:00am-12:30pm

More than a quarter of woodland wildlife species use dead and dying trees for food, shelter, and cover. Instead of cutting a tree to the ground, snags can remain, and can be coaxed into critical habitat for wildlife in the urban landscape.

Using a chainsaw, Board Certified Master Arborist and PCC instructor Anne LeSenne will demonstrate how to attract bats and birds by creating just the right size and location of habitat holes in two standing snags.


May 4, 11:00-12:30

Meet at the entrance to the Claybourne Parking Lot
