National Wildlife Federation, working with Landscape Designer John Magee, is sponsoring a 15-location wildlife garden tour in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties on Saturday, May 12, 2012.
The tour will feature 15 wildlife-friendly gardens, at sites including individual homes, a church, a school and a nature center. Each of these sites provides you an opportunity to view the garden, see some unique landscape design ideas that you can use in your own garden and to learn more about some of the plants and wildlife that call these locations home. NWF will have volunteers at each location to answer your questions as you view the gardens.
Newton-Lee Elementary School (Ashburn, VA) will also have activities for families, so feel free to bring your whole family to the event.
National Wildlife Federation Headquarters (Reston, VA) will serve as the starting point for the tour, where you can pick up your tour book before heading out to view the gardens in any order that you select. NWF will also offer tours of its habitat and a native plant sale. Get a great native plant to add to your garden that can help a few wildlife friends have a great summer.
