Get on the Map! Homegrown National Park

Imagine a national park that stretches across neighborhoods, schools, and even your own backyard! That's the cool idea behind the Homegrown National Park. It's all about turning our yards and green spaces into a connected haven for wildlife. People plant native flowers, shrubs, and trees, creating a giant network of food and shelter for birds, butterflies, and other creatures.

Join Brandon Hough, Executive Director of Homegrown National Park, to learn how everyone can be part of the biodiversity solution. Homegrown National Park (homegrownnationalpark.org) is a grassroots call-to-action with a mission to regenerate biodiversity and ecosystem function by planting native plants and creating new ecological networks. It is the largest cooperative conservation project ever conceived.

The event is presented by Dayton Area Wild Ones. Registration Requested.
