Program to focus on backyard habitats

By Staff | Oct 16, 2015

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor an evening program in Berkeley Springs on Wednesday, Oct. 21. The program, entitled “Creating Healthy Backyard Habitats,” will be held at 7 p.m. at the Morgan County Board of Education building at 247 Harrison Avenue. Everyone is welcome to attend. Admission will be free and there is no need to register in advance.

The program speakers will be three Eastern Panhandle Master Naturalists: Susan Brookreson, of Martinsburg; Carol Del-Colle, of Summit Point; and Bruni Haydl, of Charles Town. They will provide homeowners with helpful information about creating backyard habitats that attract birds and other beneficial wildlife.

Landscaping to provide habitats for wildlife has become increasingly popular in recent years. Even small yards can be landscaped to attract birds, butterflies, beneficial insects, and small animals. Trees, shrubs, and other plants provide shelter and food for all kinds of creatures.
