It’s amazing how much has been learned in just the past few years about the best ways to support birds, bees and butterflies … and it’s not just about finding the best food at the local store! The plants you choose and the way you garden has a huge impact on the number and variety of birds you will see in your yard. This course is based on the real-life experience of a spare-time gardener who has created 2 Certified Wildlife Habitats within colorful, bountiful gardens. Using the National Wildlife Federation’s framework and more recent findings from entomologist Doug Tallamy, you will learn gardening tips & techniques along with landscape design concepts, plant lists, and resource recommendations for increasing the joys of nature in your own yard… especially the birds!
