Attract birds, deter pests: Wildlife workshops planned in Snoqualmie Valley

Are you wondering how to attract more woodpeckers and owls, fence out deer or protect pets from bears or cougars?

Learn to create habitat while reducing wildlife conflicts at two-part Enhancing and Managing for Wildlife Habitat Workshops, planned for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12 and 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 14 in Carnation and Issaquah.

Participants can learn from experts on topics ranging from creating a wildlife plan for property, creating snags, bat ecology and installing bat boxes, enhancing nesting habitat and living with mammals. They will also visit a local property to see wildlife features in place and in progress.

The restoration workshop is offered in collaboration with a King County and Partnership for Rural King County project and is funded through an Environmental Protection Agency grant.
