“Bringing Nature Home” is the title of a presentation focusing on gardening for birds to be held on Saturday, January 19. The speaker is Ray Rogers.
The program is sponsored by Sheboygan County Master Gardeners and will begin at 9:30 a.m. in UWEX Room 5020 on the UW-Sheboygan Campus. UWEX offices are right across the drive from Bookworm Gardens.
Inspired by the book of the same title Ray Rogers is working to make his home landscape more appealing and nourishing for birds – and insects. He encourages growing more plants (natives whenever possible) that support healthy populations of insects and other potential food for nestlings (not just fruiting plants to support adult birds). He will also discuss non-native and invasive plants as they relate to bird populations.
Ray Rogers is a retired horticulture instructor in the LTC Sustainable Landscape course. He has also worked at the Morris Arboretum and the American Horticultural Society. He is the author of The Encyclopedia of Container Plants, Coleus, and Pots in the Garden. He loves daffodils.
