North Port Friends of Wildlife is sponsoring a talk "Native Plants for Birds" to be presented by Wilma Holley, December 18 at 6pm, at the Shannon Staub Library located at 4675 Career Lane, North Port.
Songbirds bring joy and beauty to our lives, favoring us with their amazing melodies and enchanting nature. Learn how you can attract songbirds to your yard, simply. We'll show you an array of native plants that provide food for these winged wonders, offer them shelter from predators, and allow them to safely nest and raise their young.
Join us for tips and techniques on landscaping for songbirds, whether you're just starting on your yard or looking for a change. We’ll show how birds are dependent on pollinators and how planning to attract both to your yard helps decrease habitat loss. All these factors tie in together to help you know where to look if you just want to bird watch or join the annual Christmas bird count.
Wilma has taught and lived the core "Nine Principles" of Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ for more than a decade. Particularly attuned to the "Attract Wildlife" principle, Wilma also leads education sessions on snakes, butterflies, and other backyard wildlife as well as irrigation, and water conservation. Wilma's teaching roots run back to her days developing environmental education programs for elementary students, and she traces her passion for outdoor activities and environmental conservation to her childhood on a New York dairy farm.
