Birds can be an indicator of the health and biodiversity of the landscapes around us. Our landscape design and management practices can make a big difference in whether birds decide to ignore or explore our built environments. Join landscape architect Preston Montague for a presentation series designed to help you provide more resources for birds through design and management practices. Presentations are developed in collaboration with New Hope Audubon who provides fantastic resources to the public for the improvement of resources for birds. This 3-part course provides CEUs for landscape architects.

Chapter 2: Designing Bird-Friendly Habitat - February 10

Chapter 3: Managing Bird-Friendly Habitat - February 17
