Follow Up : Backyard Bird Habitat Certification Workshop

Thank you to all who came out last night to hear the adorable and knowledgeable Nikkie West from the Portland Audubon Society speak to us about their Backyard Bird Habitat Certification Program. I for one was so excited about the program that I signed up as soon as I got home. Nikkie was kind enough to send us the great slide show she used at last night's presentation which can be found below.

Once you fill out the introduction application, a technician will come and assess the existing landscape and plant life on your property to help you get a better idea of what your next steps are. After this initial meeting, you also qualify for their discounts and incentives program and get wholesale prices on native plants to reach your backyard bird habitat goals!
