Eastside Audubon Society will be offering a lecture with slides and bird songs with an intent to help those who are interested learn how to make home gardens and yards friendly and safe for birds and other wildlife.

Participants will additionally learn how birds are affected by human settlement patterns, what kinds of birds and bugs can be hosted in gardens and neighborhoods, and how to make a garden a welcoming place for birds and animals.

Opportunities to ask yard-specific and landscaping questions will be provided. The class will then be followed by a field trip to a nearby residence that has been certified as a wildlife habitat to observe native plants and the animals and insects who depend on them.

The class is taught by Penny Bolton, a King County-based gardener and a graduate of the Seattle Audubon Master Birder program. She has also completed the UW Applied Animal Behavior certificate course and many dog training and animal training courses.

Her presentation aims to help gardeners and birders create easy-to-maintain, bird-friendly gardens.

The class will be held on Saturday, February 24 from 9 am to 1 pm at Northlake Unitarian Church, 308 Fourth Ave S, Kirkland. Class registration is $25 for Eastside Audubon members and $30 for non-members.
