Birds Need our Help

What we put in our yards, on our patios or porches, and around our properties can have an impact on birds. Let’s make smart choices, together. We’ll guide you along the way. Join us to learn more about how you can take small steps to help bring the birds back.

Below are examples of what we’ll ask you to do.

Plant a Patch

Whether you are new to gardening for birds or an expert, planting a small patch is a great activity. We’ll help with your plants choices.

Take Pictures

Seeing is believing. We’ll ask you to photo document your new plant(s) by taking before and after pictures of your area.

Leaf It Be

Birds forage on the ground throughout the season. Leaving our leaves and garden resources in place during the cooler months is a big help.

Along the Way

We’ll provide you with information and resources to deepen your journey in supporting birds at home and in your community.

In addition, we’ll offer discounts on native plants and bird-friendly goodies from Garden for Wildlife!

If life becomes too busy, you can unsubscribe from our emails at any time. We’ll reach out 10 or so times during the growing season.

What do you say? Are you ready to take more actions to support birds?

Garden for Wildlife

In collaboration with Garden for Wildlife, we’ll provide you access to discounted native plants for your region.

Sometimes knowing what to plant and where to get those plants can be half the battle to planting for birds.

Garden for Wildlife will make these decisions easier on your mind and your wallet!
