Volunteers Needed!
Audubon Members and Friends! Consider volunteering for a very pleasant and educational morning or afternoon on this weekend at one of the beautiful gardens on Audubon's annual wildlife habitat garden tour! You'll see people you haven't seen for too long, have interesting, even memorable conversations, and be outdoors with lots of native plants around you! In addition volunteers receive a free ticket for the tour - a $5.00 value, so you'll effectively be making $1.25/hour!! :)

Please call Jan Curth at 918-289-6281 with any questions or to volunteer.

 

Gardening for Wildlife

Our backyards are our private spaces, but also part of a larger landscape we share with our human and wildlife neighbors. With the right tools and information, we all can do simple things to create a healthier place to live for our families, our communities, and birds, plants, and other wildlife. Audubon At Home in Tulsa is about taking personal conservation action to improve the environmental health and habitat quality of our yards and neighborhoods. Together, our actions can have a substantial effect.

Gardening for Wildlife enriches the lives of urban gardeners. As valuable habitat for wildlife decreases due to the accelerating growth in our region, backyard habitats are ever more important. You can adopt gardening practices that have a positive impact on the water quality and help slow the loss of wildlife habitat. Most potential "urban habitat" for birds and other wildlife is located not in public parks and greenbelts, but in the yards around privately-owned homes.
