Bird-Friendly Gardening

Thursday, April 22nd 2021 • 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Sierra Laverty, IBG Adult Education Specialist 

Birds need our help. According to a recent report in the journal Science, we’ve lost 1 out of every 4 birds in North America since 1970: almost 3 billion birds. The conventional American yard is not a bird paradise—it’s a wasteland. Gardeners around the country are choosing to adopt bird-friendly practices, and it’s making an impact. Backyard habitat connectivity has been shown to increase both bird and insect populations. Our urban and sub-urban areas can be a hot spot for biological diversity if we make the right choices! Join Sierra as she breaks down the fundamentals of habitat gardening and provides you practical steps on how to make your yard a welcoming place for feathered friends. This class will cover bird-friendly plants that thrive in the Treasure Valley, gardening practices that support birds, and what NOT to do when stewarding a bird-friendly yard.
