Join us to learn more about creating bird-friendly habitats right in your own backyard by leveraging the benefits of native plants.

In this talk, we will delve into the fascinating world of creating bird-friendly habitats right in your own backyard by leveraging the incredible benefits of native plants. We’ll explore the symbiotic relationship between native flora and avian wildlife, providing a blueprint for transforming your outdoor space into a haven for diverse bird species.

Attendees will gain insights into the specific characteristics of native plants that make them irresistible to birds. From nectar-rich flowers that attract hummingbirds to berry-bearing shrubs that entice songbirds, we will uncover the diverse ways in which native flora serves as a natural magnet for avian visitors. By embracing the principles of ecological gardening, attendees will discover how small changes in landscaping practices can have a significant and positive ripple effect on the broader ecosystem.

Together we can collectively contribute to the conservation of bird species, foster biodiversity, and create a more harmonious coexistence between humans and the feathered inhabitants of our natural world.

This program is in partnership with Green Bexley's Love Your Alley program, and generously funded by the Bexley Community Foundation.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
