1:00 - 3:00

Join Audubon Connecticut’s Bird-friendly Communities Coordinator Katie Blake for an introductory workshop on planting for birds at home. The workshop will start with an introduction to the importance of native plants to birds and offer practical and simple ways anybody can make a difference for birds from the backyard to an apartment fire escape. Katie will also present a suite of online tools and resources you can access that will help you choose the right plants for your yard, apartment window or porch planters.

The majority of the workshop will involve a walking tour around Common Ground’s campus to see various habitat examples and to see the principles of healthy habitats in action. Participants will receive a native bird garden in a box- consisting of 4 native shrubs and 12 native perennial plugs for planting in your yard or apartment planter boxes.
