Attracting and Feeding our Great Lakes Bird Population
Dan Panetti of Wild
Birds Unlimited discusses the best methods to attract and
maintain a healthy back yard bird population including how to
supply food, water, cover and places to shelter and raise young.
Dan will explain types of feeders, bird houses and seed mixes
that favor the birds in our neck of the Great Lakes.
Jennifer Phillips-Vanderberg will detail the 2020 launch of the
Neighborhood Habitat Improvement Project by the Great Lakes Bird
and Bat Observatory. The project teaches residents how to
improve urban habitat on the most local scale, their yard.
Reducing turf-grass area, increasing native plantings, reducing
chemical inputs and implementing green infrastructure benefit
wildlife while improving water quality and habitat for humans.
Jenn will share the details of the project, how Port residents
can participate, and how any gardener can incorporate these
benefits in their garden space.
