Creating a Wildlife Sanctuary on Your Property: The Audubon at Home Program

  • 21 Mar 2020
  • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Jammes House, Mason Neck State Park

What can you do on your own property to attract and support wildlife?


To learn how, join us at Mason Neck State Park’s Jammes House for a presentation on Saturday, March 21: “Creating a Wildlife Sanctuary on Your Property: The Audubon at Home Program.”


Betsy Martin will talk about the Audubon at Home program and Wildlife Sanctuary certification and will explain Habitat Best Practices. Betsy is an Audubon at Home Ambassador and Fairfax County Coordinator of the program. 


Laura Beaty will relate how she transformed her yard into a wildlife habitat with a slide program entitled: “Your Landscape as Habitat.” She will show how to support nature’s relationships in your wildlife habitat, and why it’s important to view your habitat from two perspectives: the eyes of turf-grass traditionalists and native pollinators. She’ll show you the truth behind the phrases, “The greater the plant diversity the greater the wildlife” and “Plant it and they will come.” Laura is Horticulture Chair of the Virginia Native Plant Society and represents her Fairfax County district on the Fairfax Tree Commission.


This program is cosponsored by the Friends of Mason Neck State Park and The Audubon Society of Northern Virginia.


Registrants for the program have free admission to the park starting at 1:00 p.m. on March 21 and we’ll have light refreshments for you to enjoy.


This is a free program, but registration is required.  You can register at  Create a Wildlife Sanctuary
