Plant it and they will come: native gardening for birds

On Sunday, March 29, at 2 p.m. at the Howland Library in Beacon, the Putnam Highlands Audubon Society presents Kim Eireman, an environmental horticulturalist and master gardener who will share a lively and colorful program on how to attract and support birds with ecological design and proper plant selection.

Eireman teaches at the New York and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the Native Plant Center. She is an expert on lawn “meadow-scaping,” on healthy plantings for bees and pollinators, and on organic methods.

The Howland Library is located at 313 Main Street, Beacon. The event is free and refreshments will be served. For more information, visit or
