Newcastle residents can learn how to make their yards wildlife-friendly at a 10 a.m. Jan. 18 gathering.

The Newcastle Weed Warriors will host a meeting to share information about a citywide effort to earn National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat Certification.

To obtain the certification, residents must commit to providing food, water, cover and a place for wildlife to raise offspring. A healthy habitat can be in a variety of places, including a backyard, a local city space or even an apartment balcony.

The event features a speaker from Eastside Pond Building, door prizes and refreshments. Read more
