WildScaping for Songbirds ~ 1 hour 20 minutes
Wildscaping with native plants can turn a patchwork of green spaces into a quilt of restored habitat. More native plants mean more choices of food and shelter for native birds, native pollinators and other wildlife. Landscaped with native species, a garden space becomes a vital recharge station for migratory birds passing through and a sanctuary for nesting and overwintering birds.
This presentation will help the rehabilitator learn how to support songbirds and biodiversity in their own backyard, the property of their facility and green spaces in their surrounding community. Information and ideas will be shared to help inspire communities to support songbirds and biodiversity by using native plants and bird-friendly gardening practices.
