July Seminar: “Hummingbirds”

Saturday, July 21, at 10:00 a.m.

Presented by Karen Frailey Shawnee Chapter, Illinois Audubon Society


     Karen Frailey, a member of the local Shawnee chapter of the Illinois Audubon Society, will present an exciting program on hummingbirds on Saturday, July 21, at 10:00 a.m. here at Plantscape.  Her program will focus on the natural history of hummingbirds, interesting facts and fallacies, and how to attract these tiny jewel-like birds to your garden with flowers and feeders. A power point presentation and informative handouts from the Illinois Audubon Society will also be available.  She has presented programs on gardening for hummingbirds locally, throughout the state and Midwest for the past decade, so this will be a fun and interesting topic to inform us about these favorite birds.

     Seating for the presentation is limited, so please call 942-4865 or email us at  to reserve a seat for this free seminar so we will know how many people to expect.    Karen has presented several seminars on birds here at Plantscape in the past, and they are always well done, fun, and educational. Participants can register to win a FREE hummingbird feeder or accessories after the seminar, so come and enjoy this interesting presentation!
