Learn How to Attract Birds to Your Yard at CVC Workshop

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 by Credit Valley Conservation

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is hosting a free workshop where homeowners will learn how to attract birds to their yard. Landscaping for Birds will be held on Tuesday, October 1 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Chris Gibson Recreation Centre in Brampton.

Join CVC’s Melissa Creasey to discover the most common and unique birds in your neighbourhood. Learn about the top native trees and shrubs you can plant that attract them.

“Birds bring colour and music to your neighbourhood. There are many native plants that attract migrating and resident birds to your yard,” says Melanie Kramer, Senior Coordinator of Sustainable Home Landscapes at CVC. “This workshop will introduce attendees to the birds they’re likely to see and offer tips on what to plant to attract them.”

Local attendees can receive a free tree or shrub, delivered to their home. Trees and shrubs help make our communities cleaner, greener and more sustainable.

This workshop takes place in the Fletchers Creek SNAP neighbourhood. SNAP brings residents and community leaders together to take local action and build resilience to climate change. Fletchers Creek SNAP (Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan) is the City of Brampton’s second SNAP and the first of its kind in the Credit River Watershed.

Space is limited. Registration is required. Visit cvc.ca/events or call 905-670-1615 ext. 221 to reserve your spot.

This workshop is presented by CVC’s sustainable landscaping experts and is free thanks to funding from CVC’s regional and municipal partners.
