Horsford's is excited to partner with Audubon Vermont on an outdoor outing for beginner to advanced birders and gardeners! Presented by Gwendolyn Causer of Audubon Vermont.

Everyone is welcome. Please wear a mask. 

Native plants provide food and shelter for birds and wildlife. To survive, birds need native plants and the insects that have co-evolved with them. Bird-friendly landscaping provides food, saves water, and fights climate change. Join Gwendolyn Causer of Audubon Vermont for a workshop about why native plants matter: What are the threats? What are the solutions? We’ll talk about Audubon’s Plants for Birds Native Plant database and have a conversation about the power of native plants to help grow a better world for birds.

This is also a birding event! We will use both sight and sound to witness our avian neighbors around the nursery, observing their behavior as they either embark upon their migration journey or prepare for the changing of the seasons in Vermont. 

Cost: Free. 
Horsford's will be donating 10% of native plant sales from this day to Audubon Vermont.
Donations to Audubon Vermont are appreciated.

About Gwendolyn Causer

Gwendolyn Causer has been teaching environmental education programs with Audubon Vermont since 2005. Gwendolyn’s first love in nature is botany and she does most of her birding by ear. She is passionate about creating equitable access to nature for communities not traditionally included in the environmental movement. 

Audubon Vermont’s inquiry-based science programs encourage exploration, foster critical thinking, and build confidence. They inspire conservation actions that impact local communities: forest management, climate action, and native plants for birds.
