2011 Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary Tour

Saturday 09/10/11 the Atlanta Audubon Society hosted the 2011 Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary Tour. A couple of gal friends and I attended this informative and enjoyable event. 

We explored the Presbyterian Village retirement center and was delighted by the elderly and very knowledgeable wildlife gardeners. One was in her 90's and another was the past head Master Gardner for Delaware. I met and purchased 2 books from Master Birder Katharine ("Kit") Crawford Robey. Where's the Party is a sweet children's book about native birds. She signed one to my granddaughter and another for one of my great nephews. 

The rest of the sites were the backyards of private homes. One was really,really tiny...but was teeming with birds. Another had a very cool Koi pond complete with waterfall, and interesting stacks of rocks (I really liked the rocks). Yet another had more butterflies and Hummingbirds than we could count. Wish I had gotten better pictures. 

We all walked away with lists of native plants,free posters,and plenty of cool ideas to make our yards "more" wildlife friendly. 

Please support your local Audubon Society!

Peace,Health,Wealth,and LOVE to ALL!
