January Meeting – Bird-Friendly Gardening

We hope you will join
The Garden Club of Weaverville
for Our January 2022 Meeting – via Zoom

Tuesday, January 11th at 9:30 

Program: Bird-Friendly Gardening

For over 100 years, the Audubon Society has focused on making the world a better place for birds – Protect Birds and You Protect the Earth. Today birds face serious threats from habitat loss and climate change. With increased development and population growth, there are fewer undeveloped areas for our migratory and resident birds to find food, shelter and a place to raise their young. The single, easy action that individuals can take to help birds is to make their own yard more bird-friendly by planting native plants. Learn about the native plants and actions you can take to make your yard a haven for birds. 

Tom Tribble served six years as President and is now Immediate Past President of Blue Ridge Audubon Chapter, which covers Buncombe, Henderson, Madison and several adjacent counties in western North Carolina. Tom has been an Audubon member and avid birder for 45 years. Tom worked for 30 years at the NC Center for Geographic Information & Analysis, the State’s Geographic Information System, retiring in 2013. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University and a Master’s degree from Duke University.
