General Meeting & Program
 Time: 7:00 PM   

 Backyard Habitat
Certification Program 

By Susie Peterson

Susie Peterson, program manager for the Backyard 
Habitat Certification Program, will discuss the  regional 
program to build or enhance the habitat in our yards.  
Portland Audubon and Columbia Land Trust have 
teamed up to create a unique program that supports 
urban gardeners in their efforts to create natural 
backyard habitats. Itís through their collective efforts 
to revitalize urban landscapes that positive change is 
made. Together we can make our cities a healthier 
place, for ourselves and for wildlife.
Remember, we have a new meeting location! 
Find us at the West Park Community Room at 610 Esther St. (just across the street from the west end of Esther Short Park, or kitty-corner from City Hall). Main parking lot is on the west side, handicap parking is found on the east side.  There is an entrance at either side of the building.
