Action to Protect Native Birds
Join The Art of Ecology for a summer morning’s workshop, geared towards getting you outside, exploring local habitats, and discovering a few ways that homeowners can take easy actions to protect birds that visit their property.
What to Expect:
During this Action to Protect Native Birds workshop, we shall be taking a walk through a property in the process of creating certified wildlife habitat to take a look at what elements of the habitat will attract birds. During this plant-for-birds ID walk, participants will also engage in planting demonstrations to learn proper planting techniques that will help your native plants-for-birds thrive and establish themselves. We shall also discuss some other ways that bird populations are declining and how to mitigate those issues as we create DIY window-clings to prevent window strikes – the largest cause of bird fatalities in North America! At the end, participants will get to take home their created window clings as well as a native seed packet designed to support bird populations.
Located at the Brinker property: 261 Old New Road, Doylestown PA, 18901
Admission: $25/pp. A portion of the proceeds is used to restore bird habitats locally in Doylestown! Space is limited to only 15 participants, so be sure to save your space and register early!
These programs are designed for homeowners to learn more about ways to improve habitat for wildlife on their property, however the workshops are open for any age, 10+.
