Backyard Buffer Program Contacts

Backyard Buffer packet reservations are typically taken during the month of March, with bags available for pickup at a designated local site in time for the spring planting season. A limited number of bags are available each year on a first-come first-served basis.

Please contact your county coordinator to sign up or for more information. Quantities are limited so reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
