Attracting small birds to your garden - Gardens for Wildlife online workshop

Gardens for Wildlife is a free program designed to inspire and encourage you to create habitat in your gardens and open spaces, nature strips, patios or balconies to support local native wildlife 🐦

Seeing small birds visit our gardens is becoming less common but there are changes we can make that will encourage them back. 

The next workshop we are hosting in our Gardens for Wildlife program will discuss challenges faced by small birds in urban areas and different ways you can attract them to visit or nest.
