Boost the ecosystem in your own yard

The program “Eco-Beneficial Gardening 101” will be offered at 6:30 p.m. on March 26 at the Webster County ISU Extension Office, 217 S. 25th St. Extension Horticulturist Yvonne McCormick will present this informational program, giving tips on how to create a healthy ecosystem in your own yard.

Even the most beautiful gardens may not be healthy ecosystems. Your yard is more than just a combination of trees, shrubs and perennials — it is a complex system where all living things are connected. Gardening with an ecosystem approach contributes to species diversity, attracting and supporting more birds, butterflies, pollinators, and beneficial insects.

This program is free and open to the public. Preregistration is required for this program by Friday by calling the Extension Office at 576-2119.
