Attracting Birds with Native Plants

CPS Chapter( Eastside Branch)

Learn how to enhance your garden to attract a wide range of native birds in all seasons. Connie will present slides showing the most common birds that can be attracted to your yard. She will also give tips on the kinds of native plants that can be used to landscape a Pacific Northwest garden for birds and how to supplement it with feeders and other aids.

Connie Sidles is a master birder and long-time member of Seattle Audubon Society. She has written four books about nature focusing on her favorite "backyard," Montlake Fill on the UW campus. She is a board member of Friends of Yesler Swamp and leads numerous walks through these sites.

Plant Identification Workshop

The Central Puget Sound Chapter offers regular plant identification workshops to help members improve plant ID skills.  While the Workshop is oriented primarily toward beginners, anyone who wants to work on improving keying skills or their familiarity with the northwest flora is welcome.  Our main objectives are practice with technical identification keys, familiarity with plant families, and recognition of common northwest species.  No prior experience is necessary; the only requirements are interest in the topic, patience with beginners if you are an old hand, and patience with old hands if you are a beginner.  If you have them, bring a hand lens and a copy of Hitchcock or another favorite plant book.  You are encouraged to bring unknown plants for identification. We will have plenty of material and tools if you come empty handed.  CPS botanists will be the instructors.
