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 for a workshop about why native plants matter: What are the threats? What are the solutions? We will explore the four native plant food groups for birds: berries and fruit, nuts and seeds, nectar, and insects. We’ll discover what birds need in all four seasons: food, water, shelter, and nesting locations. Finally, we’ll dive into 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.

Gwendolyn Causer has been teaching environmental education programs with Audubon Vermont since 2005. Audubon’s inquiry-based science programs encourage exploration, foster critical thinking, and build confidence. We inspire conservation actions that impact local communities: forest management, climate action, and native plants for birds.
