Texas A&M University-Texarkana and the Bowie County Master Gardeners will present a program on “Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Wildlife to Your Backyard ” on Monday, January 14.

The event will take place from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm in the University Center Room 231. The class is free and open to the public, and reservations are not required.

According to a press release, the program will be presented by Aarron Corbin, Texas Master Gardener and current President of the Bowie County Master Gardeners. Aarron will give tips and suggestions on how to draw flocks of birds, butterflies, and other scurrying wildlife to your backyard- even if you live in the city. He will share suggestions for creating a safe, educational backyard wildlife sanctuary, including the use of plants in landscaping or gardening that provide good sources of natural food for your furry or feathered guests.
