Beyond the Birdfeeder: Creating Backyard Habitats
WASHINGTON — Hildy Ellis, program manager for Knox-Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District, will present “Beyond the Birdfeeder: Creating Backyard Habitat,” Friday, April 5, at 7 p.m., at the Gibbs Library, in Washington.
This program will highlight how to use natural and constructed features to provide food, shelter, water and nesting sites to attract songbirds and pollinators to home landscapes, all in time for the coming summer gardening season.
Ellis will provide information on why native trees and shrubs are a better choice for supporting songbird populations, which plants are pollinator powerhouses, and how backyard habitats mitigate the effects of development, all the while highlighting the human benefits of building a dynamic landscape.
