Tues. Apr. 21, 2015 - BCGC April Meeting

posted Apr 14, 2015, 7:58 PM by Bowie-Crofton Gardener
Feature Presentation on "Gardening and Birds" by Jackie Pemberton, owner of the Wild Bird Center in Annapolis , will be the featured speaker at the Tuesday, April 21 club meeting. She will speak on the year round needs of birds and the benefits of having a backyard sanctuary not only for them, but for us as well. The right plantings and habitat can help birds and other wildlife live healthier and longer lives.  Studies indicate that birds that frequent feeders and waterers that are properly maintained are about 40% healthier than birds that have to forage on their own. With spring nesting season starting as soon as the migrating birds’ return, now is the time to make sure you have everything they are looking for to set up housekeeping.  Jackie will explain why providing habitat, quality seed and suet, a quality water source, selecting appropriate feeders, and deterring squirrels are so important.   Come and find out how to welcome some new neighbors to your back yard!
