A Healthy Watershed:
       Magnet for Birds and Butterflies

Saturday, April 26, 2014
Meet at the Bunker Interpretive Center
9:00 a.m.--noon

Refreshments will be served.

By creatively designing urban green spaces to restore health to a watershed, these areas become magnets for biodiversity. This presentation will address ways to attract birds and butterflies to our yards, parks, school and church grounds even in highly urbanized settings. This also has multiple benefits for managing stormwater runoff and improving the quality of urban streams such as Plaster Creek.

Following the presentation, we will have opportunities for planting native plants that will contribute to the restoration of the Plaster Creek Watershed.

Please RSVP to Gail Heffner at
