Join Georgia Audubon guide Alex LoCastro as she guides you on a walk and points out native plant species and their importance to specific birds.

Since 1970, nearly three billion birds have disappeared from our landscaperoughly one in four individuals. Habitat loss and degradation are two of the leading causes for this decline, leaving fewer options than ever for our birds to nest and obtain the food they need to survive. The solution is native plants, which provide robust food, cover and nesting resources for birds as well as other native organisms. By rebuilding lost habitat and protecting existing ones, we can help reconnect ancient food webs and do our part to restore native bird populations to their former glory. 

Please no dogs.

Not recommended for children under 12.
