February 2022 Hernando Audubon Activities

Hernando Audubon Meeting: Native Plants Are for the Birds (and bees, and caterpillars and more!)

Speaker Lilly Browning is the Florida-Friendly Landscaping Program Coordinator for Hernando County Utilities Department in the Water Conservation Department. She will explain how including native plants in your landscape is the best way to attract pollinators, including our feathered friends. Lilly will show beautiful native plants that you can use to create a peaceful oasis that is wildlife and people friendly. The meeting will be held on Thursday, February 24 at 7 p.m. at Brooksville Woman’s Club, 131 S. Main Street, Brooksville. Masks and social distancing are required. Contact Bev: bevalhansen@gmail.com or 352-686-0460.

Hernando Audubon Big Day/Birdathon, Saturday, February 5.

Everyone can participate by trying to find as many species as they can during the day, whether it is in your own yard or your favorite park. At the end of the day, submit your list of species to bevalhansen@gmail.com.
