Description

A Backyard Bird Garden is a place where our feathered friends can find food, water, cover, and a place to raise their young.  A young gardener will learn that the right native plants, arranged to mimic nature, will provide birds all the food they need to be happy in your backyard or in a patio garden.  Instead of just visiting your garden to snack, birds will call it home! 

Each child will receive a “Bird Garden To Go” kit that will include plants to attract hummingbirds and other birds, seeds, birdfeeders for different types of birds, a birdbath, and a variety of snacks to hang in the garden as cold-season snacks. A great benefit of creating a bird-friendly garden is enjoying your garden while watching a bluebird dropping in for a worm in a freshly dug patch, a warbler snapping at insects, or a hummingbird probing nectar-rich flowers while robins sing in the trees.
