Thursday, May 12, 6:30pm-8:30pm - Attracting Wildlife with Backyard Water Features with Beth Clawson ($25.00) *In-person
Water features in your garden are more than something pretty to look at or fountain to hear. They can mean a survival oasis for the tiniest of beneficial creatures. Please join us as we explore the world of water features for gardens and wildlife. A Michigan State University Extension Educator since April 2001, Beth educates and consults in Natural resources, water quality and sustainability.

Beth received her Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources from Grand Valley State University with a minor in Environmental Studies from Western Michigan University, and her Master of Science in Business Administration from Central Michigan University. She is currently State Coordinator of the Michigan Master Naturalist program; and supporting the Michigan Conservation Stewards program locally. Beth also serves to locally coordinate Natural Shorelines Landscaping and Septic System (onsite wastewater treatment) maintenance education for homeowners’ programs.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are planning for a couple in-person programs. All participants, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask while indoors on MSU property or any property that is reserved or rented exclusively for an MSU activity. Please do not attend any programs, meetings, or events if you feel ill.
