VCMG: Attracting Birds to Your Garden All Year Long with Master Gardener, Leah Brennan

February 20, 2018 (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM )

Danville Public Library
319 N Vermilion
Danville, IL 61832 (Vermilion County)

Leah gardens for the birds twelve months a year. From cardinals to hummingbirds, she knows how to attract a wide variety of our feathered friends using a combination of quality food, correct feeders and specific plants in the landscape. More than ever, birds need homeowners to provide food, clean water, shelter, and places to nest. However, it’s not one sided-we need birds to feed on insects, rodents and pollinate. Scientists are finding proof that even small habitats can make a big difference. Learn specific steps you can take to have a significant impact on the birds in your neighborhood.
