February Gardening Seminar is Saturday
This Saturday, February 1, The People/Plant Connection will present Charles Floyd, a retired educator of 36 years.
Mr. Floyd will be talking about what plants to use to bring particular species of birds into your landscape and garden. Mr. Floyd taught high school biology/chemistry and physics. He later became a school principal and school administrator but he never lost his interest in science, teaching and all things wild.
Since retiring in 2001, he and his partner, Kelly Bryan of Fort Davis, lead West Texas Avian Research, Inc. This is a nonprofit organization created solely for the purpose of expanding scientific bird banding research in West Texas. They normally band about 150 species of birds each year including at least 10 species of hummingbirds.
The drought has been hard on wildlife and we can help by providing a place for them to get what they need by creating the right environment for them to survive. Birds bring life to the garden and are fun to watch.
The seminar will be held at the Water Education Center, 417 S. Oakes, in San Angelo. We meet from 9-11 a.m. Refreshments will be served and a door prize will be given away. The cost is $10 per person. Call 325-656-3104 to register and assure materials.
