The Lewiston Public Library is set to host Maine Audubon staff to present their program Backyard Birding Basics set for 11 a.m.-noon Wednesday, Nov. 30, in The Jeanne Couture Room on the first floor of the library at 200 Lisbon St. This program is free and open to the public, according to a news release from Caitlin Ramsay, Adult Services library technician.

Backyards provide a window into the natural world and there are a number of steps to take to make it wildlife-friendly. Maine Audubon’s staff will share their best practices for attracting and supporting birds in a yard throughout the winter. Questions will be answered like: Does feeding birds change their migration habits? Will they starve if you stop feeding them? Why are native plants so important for birds’ survival?

Maine Audubon works everyday with children and adults to promote environmental literacy so that Mainers can become more informed and effective stewards of Maine’s wildlife and habitat.
