Inviting Birds into Your Backyard: The Magic of Water | In-person class

February 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Water is a basic need for all wildlife, especially birds. Offering water is a great way to attract birds to your backyard, particularly for species that eat only insects and may not be attracted to bird feeders.
In this class, birding expert Herb Lewis will illustrate several design techniques for adding water features into your landscape to attract many bird species. Since 2004, Herb has been integrating water features into his backyard, and he illustrates his presentation with these successful examples from his own experience. You will leave this class with an abundance of ideas on how you can use water to create a bird habitat in your own landscape!

Additional Information: This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. All registrants will be contacted with the exact location of the class in advance.

Members: $35
Non-Members: $60
