Native Plants for Bird Habitat

  • Tuesday, May 17, 2022, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Attracting Birds to Your Garden

Birds add color, movement and essential insect control to our gardens. This class will help you learn to create a habitat to attract and support more birds in your garden. Topics covered will include providing food, shelter and water for birds, designing your garden using layers for ideal bird habitat, and native plants that provide seasonally appropriate foods for birds.

About the instructor: Chrys Gardener currently teaches online courses in Organic Gardening and Garden Design at Cornell's School of Integrated Plant Science and manages an ecological garden design and installation business with her husband. Chrys was formerly a horticultural educator at CCE Tompkins, specializing in community gardens and county beautification. She is also a dedicated food gardener, producing most of their vegetables and fruits for the year on their small homestead.
