Valley Talk: Our Yard is for the Birds

Valley Talks are free for FOW members. Register below.

Join Ruth Pfeffer for a fun and informative program on backyard birds. Through her photos, Ruth will explore the importance of feeding our avian friends, especially with the current changes in our climate. Distribution, the importance of planting native, planting for birds, butterflies, and pollinators are all part of this topic. The 8 mile corridor of greenery along Forbidden Drive is an important bird area! Our properties are also important ‘stop overs’ for our resident and migratory birds.

Ruth, owner of Birding with Ruth, is credited with creating the birding program at the Morris Arboretum where she is an instructor. She has led birding expeditions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and abroad since the 1990’s, contributed to the Breeding Bird Atlas Project in the 1980’s, and is a member of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club, The Academy of Natural Sciences, and Wyncote’s Audubon Society Board for Membership.
