Plants are the foundation of most ecosystems on earth. If we want to create rich, diverse, and resilient habitats in our yards and communities, we have to start with the appropriate plants. In this class, we will explore the importance of native plants to our local birds as sources of food, roosting, nesting, and more. We’ll take a closer look at your habitat goals and identify specific California native plants that can help you maintain a bird-friendly habitat year-round.
