Join Bryan Prather of Wild Birds Unlimited in Warson Woods for a virtual presentation on the birds living in Missouri's backyards and how to co-exist with them and provide sustainability for years to come. 

Bryan will speak about the elements of creating a yard to encourage the entire family to enjoy the birds while helping create a sustainable environment for them. Bryan will elaborate on the work of Doug Tallamy and the National Wildlife Federation with a discussion on just how impactful one corner of your yard. Small changes like introducing native plants, providing a water source and place to nest, and offering quality bird food to supplement birds' natural diets can bring a wide variety of regional and migrating birds to a backyard refuge.

Bryan will introduce a few Missouri birds, including American Robins, Carolina Chickadees, Downy Woodpeckers, Hairy Woodpeckers, the Tufted Titmouse, and the Missouri state bird, the Eastern Bluebird. Learn more about the correlation between native plants and native birds and how one cannot exist without the other.  

Registrants will receive a Wild Birds Unlimited Warson Woods coupon, valid July 12-16.
