Library to host program on Community Wildlife Habitat project

Billings Public Library will host Liz Bronson on Wednesday, Jan. 16, to give a presentation on the Community Wildlife Habitat project. The program will be held in the community room at 5 p.m.

The public is invited to learn more about the Community Wildlife Habitat project, a new effort by the Montana Wildlife Federation and the National Wildlife Federation. Under this project, homeowners, businesses, schools and other properties can receive recognition for landscaping practices that provide quality habitat for desirable wildlife, such as native birds, amphibians and pollinators like bees and butterflies. According to a news release from the library, the program enhances and restores wildlife corridors in urban and suburban areas, improves resistance to drought and other climate changes, conserves water and makes the environment healthier — outcomes that benefit people and wildlife.

The one-hour program is free and co-sponsored by the Montana Wildlife Federation and the Yellowstone County Master Gardeners.

Bronson is the project lead for Billings Gardening for Wildlife, and an education and outreach assistant at the Montana Wildlife Federation.
