Creating Backyard Wildlife Habitats

Jennifer Ramos Item Number: 28235

Location: ONLINE via Zoom (link emailed two business days prior to class)

Sessions: 4 Th

Natural wildlife habitat has been altered and eliminated locally and on a global scale by human activity. Species dependent on that habitat such as birds, butterflies, and other wildlife are pushed into ever-shrinking wilderness areas at great detriment to their future sustainability. With some small landscape modifications, you can make a difference. You can invite wildlife back to your own yard and local area by creating a habitat with a combination of food, water, shelter, and space arranged to meet the needs of wildlife. Imagine your yard teeming with beautiful flowers, singing songbirds, colorful butterflies, flitting hummingbirds, and other small wildlife.

Injury free running involves more than just having the correct shoes. It involves proper techniques that ensure that you do not end up in bed for weeks and losing your buzz through an arduous recovery process. It may even mean the difference between weeks spent in a hospital bed or worse, sustaining some long term injury that will cripple your ability to keep running. This unit gets a bit ‘sciency’ because while we want to enjoy our runs, we want to make sure that we are doing so in a safe, injury free way.
