Adam Downing, Virginia Cooperative Extension
& Joe Lehnen, Virginia Department of Forestry
Do you have clients with some woods OR maybe clients with expansive yards that they might like to convert to wildlife habitat? The Woods in Your Backyard Partnership (Univ. of Maryland, Penn State, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, VDOF and VCE) has developed a handbook for green industry professionals to learn how to create, enhance and maintain natural areas. Included are project planning, the mechanics of the work, project options and tools to help sell the service.
