Bird-friendly Gardening Course at Midcoast Conservancy (Thu. 1 Jun, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Whether you have a small yard or acres of property, you can garden and landscape to entice many of your favorite birds to your home. Jody Telfair will help participants work to create bird-friendly habitat around their homes. Through slides, discussion and handouts, the first of two classes will explore the elements and issues in creating habitat that supports the diverse needs of a variety of bird species, as well as the importance of native plants and insects in developing healthy ecosystems for wildlife.

 

Between the first and second classes, participants will assess their own property (or a friend or family members if you don’t have your own) for bird friendly elements that already exist, as well as for what aspects may be missing. Class members will then bring a plan for at least one aspect of bird friendly gardening on their own property to the second class to share and discuss with follow participants.

 

The class will meet Thursday June 1st and Thursday June 8th, from 6-8pm, at Midcoast Conservancy, 36 Water Street, in Wiscasset.  To register for the talk, go to https://www.midcoastconservancy.org/events/bird-friendly-gardening-course/. For more information, go to midcoastconservancy.org, or call (207) 389-5150.
