Georgann Schmalz on Ornithophily
Join DeKalb Master Gardener Association for its October meeting
as Georgann Schmalz shares her new program on Ornithophily.
That's pollinating by birds.
She'll cover the usual pollinators (insects, mammals) a little
but focus on how and why flowers adapt to attract birds.
She'll end with some information on hummingbirds (especially in North America)
and on the best pollinator plants.
Georgann was the President of the Atlanta Audubon Society three times.
She also taught at Fernbank Science Center K through 12.
Her website is quite informative as well.
Maybe you’d like to take a birding trip with her -- the US, Central or South America, or Africa???
See her website for details: http://birdingadventuresinc.com/
