An introduction to creating a safe and supportive landscape for birds in your yard. It covers bird biology and behavior; what birds need to survive and raise their young; how best to provide food, water, and shelter; dangers to birds and how to prevent them; and resources for further learning.
Optional Bird Hike: Meet the presenter, Eric Butler, at 8am in the WCMGA Education Garden at PCC Rock Creek (just south of Building 9). Eric will lead a one-hour guided birding hike starting in the Ed Garden and then continuing to the natural area at the north end of the PCC Rock Creek campus (weather permitting). The Ed Garden has gravel paths that are easily navigated but the natural area has dirt pathways that may be a bit muddy. There is a slight downhill area for part of the path. Dress accordingly and bring binoculars if you have them!
