Presentation: Landscaping for Birds • Johnson County

Wednesday, Feb 19th, 2014 @ 1-3pm
Overland Park Arboretum • 8909 West 179th Street • Bucyrus, KS • Map

96% of terrestrial North American birds eat insects and raise their young on a diet of caterpillars, beetles, bugs and worms. To attract birds, you must first plant to attract the insects they feed on. And 90% of insects are specialists, feeding on the native plants they co-evolved with. This presentation will feature native insect host trees, shrubs and flowers to set a banquet for our common birds.
Miami County Extension Master Gardener Lenora Larson is the Miami County representative for Kansas Native Plant Society.
There is a $3 fee to enter the Arboretum but the presentation is free.
