National Wildlife Federation and Tahoma Audubon Society are offering a specialized 24-hour training to teach you how help others to create and restore wildlife habitat in backyards, schoolyards, and other private and public areas. This program is engaging, fun and highly informative and you get to meet and interact with local conservation professionals and other similarly interested folks.
