Stratford Library’s Lovell Room
Free and open to the public

Looking for ways to attract birds to the yard? Get helpful tips and advice on how to make your yard into a bird friendly and pollinator paradise by native gardener and co-creator of the Longbrook Park Pollinator Garden, Marca Leigh, and Meredith Barges, co-chair of Lights Out Connecticut, at the Stratford Library workshop on Tuesday, April 23 at 2 P.M. in the library Lovell Room.

Birds can thrive right where you live by making your yard more bird-friendly. In the Library’s hands-on workshop, participants will pick up expert tips on how to attract birds to the yard as pollinators, nutrient spreaders, seed disbursers and year-round singers. Patrons will learn the basics of natural and less-toxic gardening methods, including choosing native plants and shrubs that local birds love, bird-friendly approaches to managing pests, and light fixtures that limit light pollution at your home.

Native gardener and co-creator of the Longbrook Park Pollinator Garden Marca Leigh and Meredith Barges, co-chair of Lights Out Connecticut, will lead the workshop.  Courtesy seed packets from the UConn Home & Garden Education Center will be distributed.
