Torrance activity to focus on attracting birds to small space gardens

March 13, 2017 by  

Torrance’s Madrona Marsh is home to many species of native plants, birds and other animals, and the public is invited to come out to an event where they will learn how they can attract some of these same birds to their own home landscape, no matter how small it may be.

Connie Vadheim, who is a professor at California State University in Dominguez Hills, will be facilitating the session where she will be giving tips about methods people can use to draw birds to a small yard. She will provide details about installing native plants to provide them with both food and shelter, and also the importance of ensuring there is a supply of fresh water.

After the presentation, the group will head outside to the native plant garden at the Nature Center. As they walk through it, Ms. Vadheim will discuss the different flora and how they can be used in the home landscape. Poster printing can be used to create promotional materials for an event like this.

Titled ‘Out of the Wilds and into Your Garden, Birds on a (Space) Budget’, it will take place at the Nature Center on April 1 from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm. It has been organized by Friends of Madrona Marsh, and everyone is welcome. Additional details and an opportunity to register can be found on the organization’s website.
