Attracting Birds with Native Plants

Do you want to attract more birds to your yard and help to support them? This program will introduce the well-known and desirable local birds that people strive to bring to their yards and the native plants that produce food, habitat, or protection for them. Information will also be provided on which native plants best support the specific feeding requirements (seeds, nectar, and/or insects) of these different bird species.

Presenter Bio:

Barry Lake grew up in South Central Michigan with a grandmother who cherished both feeding birds and gardening. He learned a lot about nature by way of getting dirty and observing nature. He owned and operated the store Lake’s Backyard Nature Place in Bloomington for three years and still runs an online business by the same name that sells birding products. Although the idea of gardening with native plants is still relatively new to Barry, he did incorporate them into his store garden and is also actively beginning to include them in his current home garden.
