Which Plants, Which Birds – and Why June 24 10 AM
Barbara Malt of the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society will show you common birds and which native plants they prefer, so you can be sure to include them in your garden plans.
We’ll consider the diverse ecological niches that birds occupy and the different food sources they use. We’ll then talk about birds that may visit your property, both migrants as well as those that breed or winter with us, and the plants that benefit different birds.
You will be on your feet for this brief talk, followed by a walk around the nursery to see the actual plants. Please dress for the weather.
Registration is Required. This event is free but we need to know who is coming. If you find you are unable to attend after registering, please cancel your reservation to make room for someone else.
