Audubon's Annual Wildlife-Friendly Yards Tour 

It's that time of year again for the 11th Annual Wildlife-Friendly Yards Tour sponsored by Apalachee Audubon. This year our event takes place on Saturday, February 16th from 10am - 4pm. $10 Tickets will be available, starting January 19th at Native Nurseries (1661 Centerville Rd.) and Wild Birds Unlimited (Thomasville Rd.) and will be available through the day of the tour. With this tour happening in the middle of winter, it is not the ordinary style garden tour. It's a chance to see the 'bones' of five environmentally-friendly yards and catch a glimpse of some fabulous winter birds. Winter is planting time so you can take notes then go home and start that yard project you've always wanted to do and to welcome the birds of spring to nest in your yard.

Need more "wet feet" photos - deadline extended
