Saturday, October 1: 2016 Habitat Festival
On Saturday, Oct. 1, the Watsonville Wetlands Watch presents the 4th annual Habitat Festival and Native Plant Sale, which will be a fun-filled day for the entire family. With a theme this year of Green Gardening, the Festival will offer a great series of talks and workshops, a fun Eco Kids Zone, live animals, nature walks, and fabulous live music including the exciting band ZunZun. The presentations and workshops will feature expert speakers on compost and soil management, permaculture, birding in your backyard, rainwater catchment, cooking with native elderberries, tool sharpening, falconry and more! We’ll also have over 1000 native plants for sale and our staff will be on hand to offer great advice and plant selection tips. The Native Plant Sale begins at 9 a.m. and Festival at 10 a.m. at the Fitz Wetlands Educational Resource Center in Watsonville (map/directions). Both events close at 3 p.m.
