SATURDAY Landscaping for Birds – Birds, like all other living things, need food, water, protection, and a place to raise their young. We will discuss the incredible benefits of planting natives in your yard as not only a way to provide these essentials for the birds, but to increase the variety of bird species attracted to your yard.

SUNDAY Hummingbirds: Nature’s Jewels – Hummingbirds are the smallest birds on earth, and even though there are more than 300 total species, they are completely unique to the New World continents. We will discuss which species can be found in the United States and here in Michigan, what they are up to this time of year, as well as offer tips and tricks for attracting them to your yard.

Space is limited. Register early!

Tickets $50 – Includes garden tour ticket,
delicious lunch & guest speakers
