Are you passionate about native plants and want to learn more about the ecological connections between our natives and our Colorado bird life? Join us for an engaging and exciting webinar on ways to diversify the birds found within your neighborhood or your own backyard using a variety of food groups provided by our native plants. We will review the newly created Native Plants for Birds handout that was designed in partnership between Denver Audubon, CoNPS, Audubon Rockies, and CSU Extension.

This webinar is designed for all skill levels of native plant enthusiasts. We will review some of the science behind the essential need for native plants within our landscape, and some of the native plants that can be planted in the fall.
