Are you ready to transform your yard into a bird sanctuary? Learn what birds need in your yard during all parts of their annual cycle, from raising babies in the spring to migrating south in the winter. You'll learn about the four food groups for birds and how to provide shelter. This workshop is equally helpful for large yards and tiny yards. You’ll get a printed copy of Audubon North Carolina’s list of 400 recommended bird-friendly native plants with full details on each one. This workshop is perfectly timed so that you can walk out of the workshop with a wish-list of bird-friendly native plants, and head straight for the NCBG Plant Sale to buy them!
