The Songbird Garden has been a long-time staple at the WNC Nature Center, and we are happy to announce that we were able to give it a bright and inviting face lift this summer! Education Specialist Chrissy Cochran and Education Art Intern Evyn Caiazza collaborated to create a peaceful space that is not only educational, but visually stunning. Evyn is a Biological Illustration major at The Cleveland Institute of Art, and she used her artistic talent to help design, paint, and assemble this project!
Songbird gardens are a great way to help native birds by simply providing them with the necessities of life – food, water, shelter, and space. This Certified Wildlife Habitat is a wonderful example of how to manage an easy and cost effective space that will not only beautify your yard, but also help the survival of many native species. Next time you visit the WNC Nature Center, please be sure to stop by the Songbird Garden to learn more about birds and how you too can help them thrive in their natural environment!
