Branch Event: Gardening for Birds/Wildlife and the Wildlife in Your Garden

Ref: C3747164

This day school will cover 2 different aspects: 1. Birds, Bins and a Brew – getting to Know the Birds in your Garden: to introduce you to the birds you may see in your garden, through visual identification, their songs and calls and their behaviour. 2. Wildlife Gardening and Gardening for Wildlife: starting with pollinators, we’ll look at the range of wildlife you may see in your garden, how to attract more, plants to include, features to introduce and why it’s important to give yourself time to just sit still in your garden.
