JUNEAU -- The Dodge County Master Gardener Association will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. The meeting will be held in the Dodge County Administration Building auditorium, 127 E. Oak St. in Juneau.
The program is free and open to gardeners of all levels of experience and skill. Participants will also become familiar with the master gardener program and meet others with gardening interests.
This month's presentation will be Urban Wildlife Workshop by David Drake. About 85% of Americans live in an urban environment, and increasingly, wildlife are sharing the same areas with humans. This workshop will help one create, enhance and manage wildlife habitat in a yard, neighborhood and community, and attract beneficial wildlife and discourage wildlife that cause problems. Creating habitat in a yard helps native wildlife and plant species, increases property value, improves human health and beautifies surroundings. Drake is an extension wildlife specialist/professor in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
