Native Gardens for Birds & Pollinators

Thursday May 16 10 am – noon

Migratory Bird Day events this year celebrate the theme “Protect Insects, Protect Birds.” You can support native insects – and thereby migratory birds – right at home by growing native plants. They need virtually no water or care. Naturalist and gardener Dave Sutherland will give you a tour of his home native xeriscape in central Boulder and share tips for creating backyard bird habitat so you can enjoy Boulder’s native ecosystem in your own yard. Be prepared to receive handouts, free native plant seeds, and a couple of transplants dug out of Dave’s garden.  Dave will share 25 years of successes and failures – and some hilarious mistakes. You can grow these plants yourself and attract migratory birds and pollinating insects to your yard. Location provided when you register.

Limit: 15. Registration is required.
