The Tropical Audubon Society organizes a free bird-friendly gardening day the third Saturday of event month. Join other volunteers to help keep the organization’s bird-friendly demonstration garden and near-native Steinberg Nature Center grounds in good shape.
WHEN: Third Saturday of every month, 9 a.m.-noon through June, 8:30 to 11 a.m. in July and August.
Do you enjoy digging in the garden, learning about native plants that attract birds and other pollinators, or weeding invasives? Then, sign up and pitch in on the third Saturday of each month. Volunteers will be required to adhere to specific gathering guidelines.
Learn how to establish a bird-friendly garden in your own yard, patio or balcony. Get hands-on experience creating wildlife habitat under the expert guidance of a resident master gardener. Get familiar with the principles of Florida-friendly landscaping. Activities include invasive plant removal, planting native species, selective pruning of native shrubs and small trees, and tidying the network of trails.
