The Bucks County Audubon Society (BCAS), located in the idyllic countryside of New Hope, Pennsylvania, is a non-profit organization founded as a chapter of the National Audubon Society in 1969. Since its inception, BCAS has been dedicated to conserving wildlife, promoting awareness of environmental problems, watching birds, educating the community about the interdependence of humans and their world, and furthering the wise use of land, air, and water.  This year, the Society is encouraging the general public to learn about “going green” at its Sustainable Living series and Backyard Eco-Gardening series.

Not only will these classes teach you how to live a healthier life for your family and for the planet, but many elements will show how you can save money on utility bills and household expenses as well!

The Backyard Eco-Gardening series consists of these educational topics:  Vegetable Gardening (May 2), Fruits & Berries (May 16), Flowers, Herbs & Container Gardening (May 30), Pest Management in the Garden (June 13), Garden Maintenance (June 27), Beekeeping (July 18), Preserving the Harvest (August 1), Raising Livestock (Aug. 15), Raising Poultry (Aug. 29), Wild Edibles (Sept. 12), and concludes with a free potluck lunch to Enjoy the Harvest (Oct. 3).
