Backyard Habitat Certification Open Yard Tour - Lake Oswego

2018 Backyard Habitat Certification Program Lake Oswego Yard Tour hosted by Friends of Tryon Creek.

June 23rd, 2018 1:00 -  4:00pm, featuring two properties, refreshments, and information on creating space for native plants to thrive in your yard.

Join Backyard Habitat Certification Program for an open yard tour featuring two local properties. This is a free event, with complementary beer, wine, and ice tea at the final stop of the tour. While you are not required to visit each of the two, both have something unique to offer and showcase the endless design and structure of the program. On Saturday, June 23rd you will be able to learn about native plants, how to control invasive weeds, and get tips for attracting more birds to your yard. Plus you will be able to chat with Backyard Habitat staff and volunteers, while mingling with current members of the program.

There is no charge for this program, but we encourage you to consider joining Friends of Tryon Creek (FOTC) as a member. Members support vital operations and Friends of Tryon Creek Mission. FOTC's mission, in partnership with Oregon State Parks, is to inspire and nurture relationships with nature in our unique urban forest.

The address of this event will be sent to you upon completion of your registration.
