Become a wildlife steward in your own backyard by transforming your garden into a wildlife-friendly habitat and creating a welcoming space for birds, butterflies, pollinators, and bats. Nature in the City Executive Director Amber Hasselbring will lead this indoor/outdoor workshop that will teach participants how to create an attractive habitat and how to select and integrate ornamental plants that will increase pollination and attract pest-loving insect, butterfly, amphibian, and aviary populations.
Amber Hasselbring is an artist, naturalist, and educator who consults on habitat features for San Francisco Planning Department’s Green Connections Plan. She founded Art Ecology, and her public work includes Art on BART, Angel Island Art & Ecology Festival, the Mission Greenbelt Project, Tigers on Market Street, and various pop-up nature parks, performances, and exhibitions in San Francisco, Chicago, and Kansas City.
