Wild About Jersey-Friendly Yards: Attracting Birds to Your Yard
September 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for our new 2020 Jersey-Friendly Yards Webinar Series and learn how to create healthy habitat for wildlife in your yard.
The Jersey-Friendly Yards website is designed to guide you through the steps to a healthier, more wildlife-friendly yard. Loss of natural habitat throughout the world has led to serious declines in populations of pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. By gardening for wildlife in our yards, we can help reverse this trend. As Dr. Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home and Nature’s Best Hope says, “Garden as if life depended on it.”

September 1: Attracting Birds to Your Jersey-Friendly Yard
Native plants are the key to attracting birds to your yard. They provide the habitat, food, shelter and nesting places that birds need to survive. By creating a landscape of beautiful plants that are compatible with our native soils, you can make your yard a low-maintenance, chemical-free oasis for the birds!
