Birds in our Midst, Creating Gardens Filled with Life

  • Bellevue Botanical Garden - Aaron Education Center 12001 Main Street Bellevue, WA, 98005 United States (map)

Backyard Wildlife Habitat Steward and Master Gardener, Julie O'Donald will give an overview of the elements that create beautiful gardens for birds and people. Best native plants for birds and design features that create habitat will be emphasized. Photos of birds with their food plants will show how to bring nature home to any size property. Julie's personal certified wildlife habitat contains over 200 species of native plants and attracts birds, butterflies, pollinators and beneficial insects.

Active in educational community outreach, Julie volunteers for the Washington Native Plant Society, the Washington Butterfly Association, Kruckeberg Botanic Garden and the National Wildlife Federation as the team leader for the Brier Wildlife Habitat Project. Julie's garden has been featured in Pacific Horticulture, Bird Watching Magazine, The Butterfly Gardener and Sunset publications.
