National Parks Store: Support Birds by Going Native!

Learn why native plants are so important for birds and how you can help.

Share on Facebook

National Audubon currently has eagle eyes on two main conservation initiatives. The first is a landscape-scale program focusing on conservation in major migratory flyways. The second is a “bird friendly communities” program designed to mobilize hundreds of thousands of people to increase habitat and reduce threats to birds in their communities.

As part of this, National Audubon will roll out a major Native Plant Initiative in spring 2016. Our communities, parks and back yards are almost sterile to birds when they contain only non-native, ornamental plants. When they contain native plants, birds thrive! Tucson Audubon has stressed use of native plants in landscapes and gardens for years and will match the national campaign with a local effort to “nativize” landscapes and gardens by recognizing homeowners’ achievements in creating backyard habitat.

Join Kendall Kroesen, urban program manager for Tucson Audubon, to learn why native plants are so important for birds and how you can help. This session is for the birds–literally!

Presentations at 12 PM & 2 PM.
