Hillsborough County Extension Office 5339 County Road 579, Seffner, FL 33583
In many areas of our region there are little to no places left for native plants and wildlife except in our gardens, backyards and open spaces. Garden and backyard habitat restoration projects are now vital to the conservation of the diversity of the Tampa Bay region’s plants and animals. Robert Northrop will provide information and techniques for sustaining native plant and wildlife habitat in our backyards, gardens and open spaces. Specific examples will be used to illustrate how to organize and implement native habitat restoration and conservation within the region’s urban/suburban yards and open spaces.
Robert Northrop (BS-Forestry/Wildlife and MS-Wildlife Ecology) is the extension forester for the University of Florida IFAS Extension in Hillsborough County. Rob previously taught wildlife management at the University of Delaware for 14 years.
Meetings include light refreshments and a native plant auction after the speaker. The meetings are free and all guests are welcome.
