2019-2020 Programs

SEPTEMBER

Birds in South Jersey's Gardens and Backyards- Our gardens and yards provide food, water and shelter for all sorts of wildlife.  Birds are often some of the most obvious visitors to our backyard refuges, bringing color and song to our lives.  Have you ever thought about what other benefits we and nature derive from their presence?  Do you know what challenges birds face and how we can help them thrive?  Can you identify your most frequent visitors?  Perhaps there is more than what meets the eye and ear.
