"Attracting Birds to Your Backyard"
Speaker, Neil Zimmerman
Gardening and birding are a natural fit! No matter how small, our yards are becoming increasingly more important as wildlife habitat. Loss, fragmentation, and degradation of suitable habitat are the leading causes of population declines in birds, other wildlife, and plants. Our garden and landscape choices directly affect the health of that habitat, for ourselves and for the naturally occurring wildlife and plants that must depend on it.
Join Neil Zimmerman, Seattle Audubon Outreach Chair and Master Birder, to learn how to attract and care for birds in your yard through plant selection, gardening practices, and use of water features. A dynamic presentation and photos (many from Neil’s own yard!) will be used to illustrate the different ideas. You’ll want to bring a pencil and notebook -- Neil’s tips and tricks are not to be missed!
