Join us for Planting for Birds (Webinar) on Tuesday, September 14 at 1 PM.

Do you love birds? Would you like to reduce your yard upkeep costs? Do you want to recreate a native, beautiful habitat in your yard? There are many reasons to garden for birds – dig in with us as we share those reasons.

You’ll join Laura VonMutius, education manager of the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, in this virtual program to learn how growing bird-friendly plants will attract and protect the birds you love while making your space beautiful, easy to care for, and better for the environment. Plus, you’ll meet some live raptor ambassador birds up close and learn how they benefit from native plants!

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

  • what a native plant is, how to find them and their importance.
  • how native birds and native plants co-evolved and understand that both are necessary for each to thrive in the environment.
  • what native plants are needed to have a full working ecosystem which supports the entire food chain up to apex predators like birds of prey.
  • that having native plants in your yard saves you money and promotes a healthy atmosphere for humans and animals.

This program is presented by Laura VonMutius and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with Audubon Center for Birds of Prey.
