“Native Plants for Birds” is the Trevose Horticultural Society’s featured program on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. at the Bensalem Senior Center, 1850 Byberry Road, Bensalem.
Guest speaker Lynnette Saunders invites attendees to learn why birds are so important, the many threats they face and how you can help. By including native plants in your landscape, you can provide protection, food and nesting sites to help save the birds. Choosing plants that are best suited for common backyard species, as well as hints on garden design, will be discussed.

Both her master’s degrees from West Chester University and her Ph.D. from Drexel University are in ecology/freshwater ecology. Prior to retiring, Saunders worked for several environmental consulting firms and taught at high school and college levels. Saunders stays active volunteering with the Audubon Society, her township’s environmental advisory council, local land trust and the Penn State Extension Master Watershed Stewards, to name a few.
