Learn to enhance your backyard for birding with Rob Stavinga

September 21, 2018 – Mark Wednesday, September 26 on your calendar for a fun and informative workshop on how to enhance your backyard to attract and enjoy birds at the Caesarea Community Hall in Caesarea.

The free two hour workshop will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is part of the Durham Stewardship Speaker Series.

“Kawartha Conservation’s Rob Stavinga is a well-known and respected local bird and horticulture enthusiast,” said Kawartha Conservation Stewardship Coordinator Holly Shipclark. “Rob is sought out for his incredible knowledge and enthusiasm for birds and creating and maintaining natural landscapes that attract birds for optimum viewing.”

The workshops are designed to provide simple to understand and implement information for residents of Durham Region and the Kawartha watershed, and will provide key take aways for participants as well as ample time for questions and answers.

“My presentation will focus on a few key elements that anyone can implement to improve and enhance their backyard birding enjoyment,” said Stavinga. “We will look at types of bird seeds for different birds as well as focusing on what types of plants, shrubs and perennials that homeowners can plant to create natural environments birds want to come and enjoy and spend time in.”

The workshop is the second in a series of four free workshops. The final two workshops will be Winter Garden Prep & Enhancing Your Urban Oasis on October 17 in Port Perry and Septic Systems on October 24.

“The Durham Stewardship Speaker Series is made possible through the support of Durham Region,” explained Shipclark. “We are thrilled to be able to provide this series of talks and discussions on matters important to area residents.”
