Backyard birding session explores ‘landcaping for birds’

The Backyard Birding series continues at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.

The second in the 10-part series is “Landscaping for Birds with Native Plants,” presented by Joe Holtrop, Executive Director of the Clallam Conservation District.

Holtrop will discuss important aspects of a bird-friendly yard — including food, water and shelter — with emphasis on the use of plants native to the area.

Backyard Birding classes are hosted by members of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS) and can be taken either as individual classes or in a series. Cost of each session is $5. Admission is free for anyone under age 18.

For participants completing five sessions in the series, OPAS offers a free one-year membership.
