Nature’s Wonders Take Flight
Attracting Birds and Insects to the Garden
Gardening is not just about plants. Many beneficial animals add character and energy to ornamental gardens. We will host two sessions to explore many of the winged creatures that enhance our landscape. In our first session, visitors will practice backyard birdwatching skills while learning how to provide food sources and nesting habitat for our feathered friends. Our second session will focus on the immense diversity of insect pollinators and how to attract them with native plants.
Session 1: Backyard Birdwatching, Birdfeeders, and Birdhouses – Sunday, May 16; Monday, May 17
Session 2: Observing Pollinators/Planting for Bees and Butterflies – Sunday, May 23; Monday, May 24
Afternoon Sessions: Sundays from 2:00-3:00 pm (except June 20)
Evening Sessions: Mondays from 7:00-8:00 pm
