Backyard Wildlife Festival May 9

The trouble with traveling this time of year is that there is so many plant sales and events to miss. Here is one event I didn't miss and thought you might be interested:

Saturday, May 9 - 9am to 3pm
Tukwila Community Center - 12424 42nd Ave. S. - Tukwila
Craft Vendors, Education, Workshops 9am - 3pm
Certified Wildlife Garden Tour 1pm - 5pm

"A free, all-day event to educate and inspire people to welcome wildlife - such as birds, butterflies, and other wildlife - into their backyards, gardens and communities. The event will host a variety of activities and educational opportunities on how to attract and support wildlife through garden and landscape practices, and creating and preserving wildlife habitat in our region."

I've attended a few times, including one year when I did do the Garden Tour. Maybe, just maybe, I'll make it again this year!

I notice the plug for the MG classes in Kent. If you have not already, you should plan to attend the classes required to become a Master Gardener. I took them here last fall and learned so much more than I could imagine. It was well worth the money and the time.

(PS: Your encouragement paid off! Our new blog can be accessed from the website.)

Paula - Nice to see you! Thanks for the tip on the MG program. I'll have to check to see how they're offered here. Congratulations on the new blog!
