Birds & Native Plants in Western Washington
Ever wonder why native birds need native plants? Join us on November 15 for an informative presentation by UW Bothell Herbarium’s Collections Manager, Sarah Verlinde, and lead volunteer, Ashley Shattuck, as they explore the relationship between birds and plants and discuss some of the most popular and important plants needed by our local birds. The presentation will also cover invasive plants that currently threaten bird habitats, and how you can make an impact in your garden and community natural areas.
Sarah and Ashley have been building the UW Bothell Herbarium’s collection of native plants for the last 3 years. As a storage facility that catalogues and holds dried plant specimens, the Herbarium provides hands-on student programs while archiving plant specimens from King and Snohomish Counties for their historical and cultural significance.
