Kristen Marshall Mattson, Gillespie Museum director

"The Birds and the Bees: Creating Backyard Habitat" with Kristen Marshall Mattson, Gillespie Museum director; 7 - 8:30 p.m. in the RELC.

Join new Gillespie Museum director Kristen Marshall Mattson in our first Science Café of the season to find out how to create backyard habitat, no matter where you live. Who doesn’t love a backyard full of singing birds, fluttering butterflies, and colorful flowers? Learn how best to attract and support wildlife in your own backyard using native plants. Whether you already have extensive gardens and a long “life list”, or are just getting started, you’ll learn practical and science-based tips to make your yard more nature-friendly.

Please RSVP to reserve your spot, as seating is limited!  We look forward to seeing you there!
