2018 is the Year of the Bird in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful bird protection legislation ever enacted.  This workshop will outline ways you can help protect birds in your own backyard by providing food, shelter, and a place to raise their young.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • what birds eat to support their entire life cycle including their special needs for migration
  • how to make your landscape into an organic bird feeder throughout the year
  • landscaping practices that safely sustain birds and other creatures in our environs

 Our workshop leader, Sally Wencel is a gardener, native plant propagator, and sustainable landscaping advocate.  She is the National Vice-President of Wild Ones Natural Landscapers, a member of the Chattanooga Tree Commission, Co-Chair of the Chattanooga Area Pollinator Project and Co-Chair and manager of the Certificate in Native Plants program.

Space is limited, so be sure to register as soon as possible.  EarthCare members will be providing a pot-luck lunch.
