He also will discuss how native plants have evolved with native birds, creating a symbiotic relationship, providing berries and fruits, seeds, nectar and insects. “So, providing a multi-level habitat with flowers, shrubs, vines and trees attracts a variety of birds and, in return, creates a year-round refuge in your garden for both birds and humans to enjoy,” according to the release.

His talk will be in the Piñon Room at the Albuquerque Garden Center, 10120 Lomas NE.
