Plants for Birds

Plants for Birds

The 2019 Native Plants for Birds program will engage dozens of high school-aged youth in free 8-week experiential learning and stewardship programs in Strathcona Community Gardens. Youth participants will grow hundreds of bird-supporting native plants and develop a native plant demonstration garden. The plants grown by youth participants will be distributed with educational materials to local organizations and schools to develop bird habitat gardens and contribute to Vancouver’s ecological network.

NEW START DATES: September 28th – November 16th
