Chatham Conservation Partnership conducted a webinar on Healthy Yard Alternatives on October 21, 2021, and we had a great turnout of about 140 folks. Now everyone can view the recording! Barbara Driscoll of the New Hope Audubon Society talked about the benefits of leaving your leaves; Chatham County Cooperative Extension Horticulture Agent Matt Jones talked about Lawn Alternatives; CCP Steering Committee member Allison Weakley shared a local landowner example of a wildflower meadow; and Chatham County Cooperative Extension Sustainable Agriculture Agent Debbie Roos gave a virtual tour of her Pollinator Paradise Demonstration Garden through the seasons.
