Presented by Rachelle Roake

Habitat loss is the leading cause of bird population declines, but through cultivating native landscapes, no matter the size, we can make a difference. Your backyard, office, or school can make a significant impact for birds by incorporating native plants.

This presentation will discuss the vital connections between birds and native plants and provide an introduction to actions Michigan Audubon and other Audubon groups nation-wide are taking to promote native landscapes for birds.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this free North Oakland Wild Ones event. Donations are always welcome to help bring future educational opportunities! A printable flyer is available for distribution here. Doors open at 7, and the presentation starts at 7:30.
