The last week of February is National Invasive Species Awareness Week—join Greenwich Audubon Center for an online look at what we can do to help with this critical threat to our natural habitats. Unfortunately, invasive species of flora and fauna can cause harm to our native wildlife. However, there are actions we can all take to help control invasive species and support local biodiversity. To mark this occasion, we invite you to join us for a virtual tour of our center grounds as we discuss our efforts to replace harmful invasive plants with native alternatives that support birds and other wildlife. You will learn about some of our most beneficial native plants that you can plant where you live, to support wildlife and for the love of birds!
