Library closed summer Sundays (opens on September 8, 1 - 5 PM.)
Join us for an Author Talk with Margaret Roach who will discuss Making a Garden For the Birds. Copies of her new book A Way to Garden will be available for sale and signing at the event.
"What started out decades ago as merely a semi-conscious wish to see more birds while I started a garden on a former blank canvas, ended up bringing about 68 avian species into the garden each year, each in its own time, with a smaller but substantial number nesting in it or at its periphery," said Margaret Roach. "I’ll share all my “if I knew then what I know now” aha’s about setting realistic aims (no, not every site is going to attract bluebirds no matter how many boxes you buy!) and accomplishing them—all within the context of a visually pleasing home landscape."
This program is co-sponsored with the Library, Books on the Common, Caudatowa Garden Club, Ridgefield Garden Club, Woodcock Nature Center, Norwalk River Watershed Association, and the Pollinator Pathway.
