Bringing Wildlife to Our Yards
Audubon at Home, one of the signature efforts of ASNV is designed to show home owners and others who manage small plots of land how to create wildlife habitat. By using native plants and simple wildlife-friendly gardening techniques, anyone can make their property more attractive to birds, butterflies, frogs, and other critters. These techniques work in suburban yards, school yards, and even apartment building balconies. Learn about Audubon at Home and some things you can do to support wildlife where you live.
This program will help you identify many of the birds that commonly visit our backyards in Northern Virginia. You will probably learn a few new and interesting things about some of our most familiar birds.
The State of Birds in Northern Virginia
Since 1995, ASNV has been conducting an annual survey of breeding birds in our area. The data we have gathered shows us some interesting findings and trends about bird populations in our region – species that are doing well, and species that have all but disappeared. This presentation talks about the birds, the threats, and some steps that can be taken to protect the birds.
