Ecological Gardens & Landscapes

Discover how to create beautiful outdoor spaces that benefit wildlife and people

**Due to the COVID-19 crisis this course series has been postponed. We will post updates on rescheduling as soon as information becomes available.**

Join Greenwich Audubon Center for Ecological Gardens & Landscapes—a course series on creating ecologically beneficial and beautiful outdoor spaces.

While most people agree that vibrant local environments are beautiful, and fostering them without the use of harmful chemicals is beneficial, doing so requires an understanding of how plants, animals, and people interact to create balanced ecosystems. Through our Ecological Gardens & Landscapes program, discover how you can create beautiful, ecologically balanced environments. This course series features classroom and hands-on learning that covers design, installation, cultivation, and management practices.

Get ready to create your own pesticide-free, bird-friendly, and beautiful home gardens and landscapes! Come with a desire to learn, leave with a solid foundation of know-how.

Program Fee: $99 per person for the full course package (6 classes, choose one date per session)
