Gardening for Birds
Wild bird populations have decreased by over 25% since 1970. One action we can take is to provide safe habitats for them in our own yards, with food, shelter, and water. Kevin Floyd, botanical curator at the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens at UTEP, will present on ways to make our yards bird-friendly. We will also learn about the results from our chapter's Birdathon that took place October 2-3.
The meeting will open about 10 minutes early for people to get logged in and chat with each other. Register for the meeting here. The meeting is open to everyone, whether you are an Audubon member or not.
The El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society. We have a large territory, all of Texas west of the Pecos River ("Trans-Pecos"). Our members are found throughout the Trans-Pecos, but most live in the region's largest city, El Paso. Birds, birding, wildlife, the environment, and our community are the concerns of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society.
