The Habitat Gardening for birds workshop was attended by 30 people on Aug 25, 2019 at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. Attendees enjoyed the talk and the tour of the garden. Catherine Carney Feldman was very knowledgeable and a great speaker. She bases a lot of her information on the book Bringing nature home by Doug Tallamy.
All species on our planet need habitat—a place to call home. Habitats provide shelter from the weather and predators, a place to raise young, water, and of course food. With over 2,000 acres, the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary was a perfect place to see what birds require for habitat and to learn the basics of how you can transform your own landscape into a sustainable habitat for birds. Participants received a guided tour of the nature gardens, as well as a list of native trees, bushes, and ground cover that provide food for birds.
