Blackbrook Audubon will show homeowners how to attract more birds to their yards with selective planting at their meeting 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19th at Penitentiary Glen. Michael Goldman of National Audubon Society will describe how to use Audubon’s Plants for Birds database to choose plants that will grow best in a target zip code and attract species of birds the audience would like to see. Planting native trees, shrubs and flowers will also benefit pollinators like butterflies and moths, leading to more caterpillars which are fed upon by birds.
Goldman is the Conservation and Outreach Manager for Grange Insurance Audubon Center in Columbus. He is originally from Beachwood, Ohio.
