EVENT: Native Plants for Birds

Songbirds bring joy and beauty to our lives, favoring us with their amazing melodies and enchanting nature. Our free class Aug. 21 will show you how to attract throngs of songbirds to your yard, simply.

We’ll show you an array of native plants that provide food for these winged wonders, offer them shelter from predators, and allow them to safely nest and raise their young. Join us for tips and techniques on landscaping for songbirds, whether you’re just starting on your yard or looking for a change. Register early through to reserve your spot and receive notice of any changes.

For questions or further information, please call 941-861-5000 or email If you require special accommodations to attend one of our events, please contact us in advance at 941-861-5000 or

  1. Hello,

    Will you be having another class like this in 2020? I am on a waiting list until 2021, master gardening class. I would pay to take this class as I am impatient and really want to bring more of the songbirds I had in NC. please let me know if you will be hosting another Event: Native Plants for Native Birds, this year!

    Thank you, in advance,

    Dawn Rendsland
