Urban Bird Habitat: Recipe for Conservation
with Jennie MacFarland, Tucson Audubon Important Bird Areas Program Manager

We all have the power to create habitat for urban wildlife in our yards BBHU_GWestand neighborhoods. Do you have the desire, but need some guidance? Jennie will introduce you to "Recipe Cards" for attracting specific urban bird species into our outdoor living spaces. These cards will provide a step by step on the “how to” and will include information such as how to create yard habitat for hummingbirds, Gambel's Quail, Lesser Goldfinch, Western Screech-owl and Curve-billed Thrasher. She will give some background on the origin of this outreach tool within the Tucson Bird Count’s "Bringing Birds Home" project and will discuss reconciliation ecology; the driving force behind this initiative started by Mike Rosenzweig at the U of A. Sharing our urban space with wildlife will greatly influence local conservation efforts in the future. Learn how you can join in and contribute to this important movement. Photo by G. West.
