Attracting Birds to Your Garden
Birds add color, movement and essential insect control to our gardens. This class will help you learn to create a habitat to attract and support more birds in your garden. Topics covered will include providing food, shelter and water for birds, designing your garden using layers for ideal bird habitat, and native plants that provide seasonally appropriate foods for birds.

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
