Class Description

Class Section | CED.1001.V01 Class Number | 62444

In this two-part series you will learn how to “birdscape” your yard to attract more birds. In the first session, learn how to attract and feed birds in your yard as well as identify common birds. You’ll also learn basic information about how bird feeders and native plants are used for food, shelter, and nesting. The value of other features such as water sources for drinking and bathing, brush piles, leaf litter, and more will also be discussed. In the second session, explore the diversity of your backyard birds. Once you have upgraded your backyard landscaping to attract new birds, the most important step is to be patient and observant. You may already be attracting more birds than you realize, but do you know what they are? Participants will share pictures and other observations exploring successes of their recent changes to their property.
