VOLUNTOWN- "Gardening For the Birds" will be presented on Tuesday, May 7 at 6 p.m. at the Voluntown Public Library. Join Rosanne Sherry, the URI Cooperative Extension Master Gardener State Coordinator as she explains about landscaping with native and other plants to attract birds, which is a way to extend the gardening season throughout the year. The benefits of enhancing home landscapes to attract birds, both residents and migratory, range from environmental improvements on a local scale to the personal well-being and enjoyment of the gardener. Various ways of attracting birds with extensive plant lists, feeding stations, container plantings and enhancements like water sources increase the chance of enlarging a yard list to well over 50 species throughout the year will be discussed.
