DOS May Meeting: “Supporting Backyard Birds with Native Plants” by Leah Brooks
May 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
From fruiting shrubs to seed-bearing wildflowers, native plants provide shelter and forage that are essential to our local birds. Take an in-depth look at how plants that add seasonal interest to the home garden also serve as lifelines for our feathered friends. Join Leah Brooks as she explores the intricate connections between native plants and the animals that have evolved alongside them.
