Presentation by KNPS very own, Jeff Hansen.

RSVP for Soup Supper by Fri. January 26th by calling 620-327-8127.

To survive and prosper, birds require food, water, shelter, and nesting sites. By providing all four, we can attract birds to our landscapes. Jeff Hansen is a knowledgeable enthusiast of the natural world, and after going native with the landscaping of his suburban Topeka home, Jeff has documented more than 100 bird species on his property. Learn some of the Kansas native plants that provide food and shelter for birds, various bird feeder options, how to provide water in various forms, natural and artificial nesting options, and how Jeff solved his starling problem.

Come for supper at 6:00 p.m. or just the lecture at 6:30 p.m. ($5 for lecture, $10 for supper and lecture).
