It’s easy to create an inviting environment for birds ( and other delightful creatures) using an exciting array of native and desert adapted plants. Kirti Mathura, Smartscape Coordinator, will show you how to provide a combination of plants that will provide food, shelter, and nesting opportunities for year-round activity.
