The Grow Native For Birds project is sponsored by Bridgerland Audubon, National Audubon, Utah Public Radio and Utah Native Plant Society.
We started with a declaration by Mayor Holly Daines
A contest through Utah Public Radio followed to collect art for a bookmark. The winning design was by Evan Tynan. A copy of the front and back is found below.
The printed bookmarks were distributed to elementary schools in the Logan School District and to the public through Cafe Ibis.
We also underwrite Wild About Utah on Utah Public Radio and promote Grow Native content.
We encourage you to think about planting native plants in your yard and in public spaces and provide learning links on this page and our Wild About Utah pages below:
