Carthage College biology professor and nature photographer Dr. Dana Garrigan will introduce you to some of the bird species present in Chiwaukee Prairie in southeastern Kenosha County. You’ll see engaging photos of both common and less familiar species and have a chance to learn about the biology, behavior, and conservation of birds in this incredibly diverse remnant prairie. The presentation is suitable for all ages.
Gardening for the Birds, Bees, and Butterflies
You Maybe you are just tired of mowing all that grass, and want something that can take its place and take care of itself? Is there a garden you want to change, expand or begin? Are you looking to create your own backyard bird sanctuary or a small patch for butterflies? There are many options that can help create habitat for pollinators and birds. The native planting areas I have bring in so many interesting visitors, and require very little care. A FREE information packet we have created with the help of Wild Ones, can help you decide what you want to do. Please do something to help bring back the birds.
