Native Plants for Birds – Hilltop Arboretum

March 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Tuesday, March 26
6:30 – 8 pm
For some time now, the Audubon Society has been promoting the use of native plants when landscaping our home places and gardens to attract and support bird life. In this program, Jane Patterson, President of Baton Rouge Chapter of the Audubon Society, will talk about the importance of using native plants and discuss native plants that will attract birds to your yard. She will break it down into types of plants: trees, shrubs, and perennials, that you may want to use in your home landscape and discuss what kinds of birds may be attracted to your yard if you use these plants.

Jane Patterson is an avid birder and amateur photographer who loves to share her love of birds with others. She Is currently president and education chair for the Baton Rouge chapter of The National Audubon Society. She has been teaching birdwatching classes since 2007 and has introduced hundreds of people to the pastime. Jane also earned her certification as a Louisiana Master Naturalist in 2018. She is especially fond of gardening with native plants to support birds, butterflies and insects and other wildlife. Jane retired from her career in state government in 2017 as the Director of Telecommunications where she was responsible for overseeing internet and phone services for Louisiana state government.
