Basic Backyard Birds
Have you ever wondered what LBB (little brown bird) is flitting around in your garden? Or what native plants you could introduce into your garden to encourage more bird life? If so come join us for an informative talk on Basic Backyard Birding. Tree of Life’s Alisa Flint will share some helpful tips on identifying some of our local birds by sight and sound as well as which native plant species are irresistible to our feathered friends. Weather permitting we will also take a quick walk around the demonstration garden area to see what we can find. Binoculars are encouraged.
The Replace Your Lawn Series (RYL) will repeat starting March 18!
