Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests
Creating a backyard oasis with birds in mind is much easier than you think! By focusing on native species and diversity, you can design a beautiful yard for yourself all while catching a glimpse into the antics of the bird world.
There are countless benefits to enhancing biodiversity. LEAF’s naturalization planting events assist in recreating diverse, sustainable and resilient urban forests. Through increasing plant diversity, LEAF protects public lands and urban forests for future generations, while helping connect people to their local environments and to each other. These events are crucial to creating and sustaining healthy environments.
Fall is an excellent time of year to attract birds to your yard, and one of the best ways to do so is by planting fall food sources. Native fall-fruiting shrubs are great choices because they produce an abundance of nutritious fruit exactly when migrating and winter-residing birds need them.
