Join Master Gardener and bird lover Joan Butler for “Birdscaping: Home Sweet Habitat,” a beautifully illustrated program that explores the importance of creating welcoming habitats for birds through thoughtful landscape choices, including native plants vital for food and nesting sites. Learn about the benefits and joys of creating beautiful, layered gardens designed for avian – and human! – habitation. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Flint Public Library.
About the presenter: Joan Butler has been an enthusiastic gardener, plant collector and birder for over 35 years, and believes gardens should invite you to linger in the world outside your door. The gardens on her half-acre suburban property have been included on several garden tours and feature exciting plant combinations, dramatic horticultural specimens, and extensive collections of native plants, hosta and epimedium.
Joan has a deep and fundamental interest in the natural world. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Geology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a Certificate in Landscape Management from UMass Extension Green School. She is a Master Gardener, a horticulturist at Weston Nurseries, and is a past Chairman of the Massachusetts Landscape Design Council. She is a member of the Garden Consultants Council, the New England Hosta Society and is an accredited Flower Show Judge. Joan has presented programs at flower shows in Massachusetts and Connecticut, and at numerous garden clubs, horticultural societies and libraries.
