Program Type:Virtual Program
This program will discuss how songbirds and hummingbirds can be attracted to small landscapes through the use of native plants that furnish insects, seeds, flowers, and fruits for birds. Specific examples of the most versatile and adaptable native woody and herbaceous plants will be included as well as simple gardening practices essential for birds, The session will close with a brief review of local resources you can enlist to help on your journey. The presenter will be Mitch Leachman, director of programs for the St. Louis Audubon Society and coordinator of its Bring Conservation Home program. He has been gardening with native plants for 15 years and enjoys every one of the critters supported by his current inventory of 80 species of native plants. He has been active with the Audubon network for more than 25 years, and on staff with St. Louis Aububon since 2008. He plans and coordinates many chapter activities, including Bring Conservation Home, community stewardship projects, communications and outreach.
