Even those living in an urban setting have a way to attract wildlife to their yards by giving them a habitat in which to live.
The Shawnee Public Library will look at that topic with a program on Creating Urban Bird Habitat at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 31, in Community Room A of the library, 101 N. Philadelphia Ave.
The program will be presented by members of the Deep Fork Audubon Society, a local chapter of the National Audubon Society. The Audubon Society’s stated mission is “to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity.”
Yards where landscaping mimics the natural features of the wild within a region have a better chance of attracting animals native to the area. In this program, participants will learn things they can do within their yards to create a more proper habitat.

Registration will be required in advance to attend and may be completed at the library, by calling 275-6353 or online here .
