Looking to add beauty to outdoor spaces, while helping birds and wildlife too? Join Audubon for an online, interactive course focused on bird-friendly plants for your home landscape. With the right plants, any space—from a small container on your patio to an acre of your backyard—can become more bird-friendly.
In this four-part workshop, birding expert and naturalist Ken Elkins, Audubon Connecticut's Community Conservation Manager, will provide an in-depth look at the things you can do to make your outdoor spaces more bird-friendly for our year-round avian residents as well as feathered friends who stopover during their migration journeys.
The four sessions will take place every Tuesday from May 19 thru June 9.
- Week 1 (May 19): Plants to Attract Your Favorite Birds
- Week 2 (May 26): Container Gardening With Native Plants
- Week 3 (June 2): Attracting Birds by the Seasons
- Week 4 (June 9): Creating Mini-Habitats in Your Outdoor Spaces
Upon registration, you will receive a link to login into the online classroom.
