Birds and Native Plants in Western Washington

Ever wonder why native birds need native plants? Join us on November 15 for an informative presentation by UW Bothell Herbarium’s Collections Manager, Sarah Verlinde, and lead volunteer, Ashley Shattuck, as they explore the relationship between birds and plants and talk about some of the most popular and important plants our local birds need. The presentation will also cover invasive plants that currently threaten bird habitats, and how you can make an impact in your garden and community natural areas.

Sarah Verlinde and Ashley Shattuck have been building the University of Washington Bothell Herbarium’s collection of native plants for the last three years. As a storage facility that catalogues and holds dried plant specimens, the herbarium provides hands-on student education programs while archiving plant specimens from King and Snohomish Counties for their historical and cultural significance.
