Landscaping for Birds

If you plant it, they will come! McHenry County Audubon member Lisa Maier has been naturalizing her quarter-acre suburban back yard for six years and the efforts are paying off. She has documented 96 species of birds that have found food, shelter and/or water in her small McHenry yard. Utilizing native forbs, shrubs and trees, she has attracted seed-eaters, berry eaters, insectivores and raptors too. There’s a complex web of life that can be woven in our home landscapes and every little bit helps! Come learn how Lisa has done it and take home tips for your own landscaping. Registration is requested at 815-344-1294 or dnr.volobog@illinois.gov Group size is limited - Walk-ins welcome if space allows but walk may be cancelled if minimum registration is not met 24 hours prior. Now is also a good time to place an order with the Friends of Volo Bog’s annual Native Shrub and Tree Sale. Watch for the order form to become available in February.
