Planting Spring Native Perennials in the Fall -- Backyard Nature Series (Succop)
Spring-blooming perennials are best planted early in the fall while the soil is still warm. This gives the roots enough time establish properly to provide pollinators and birds food in the spring. Adults and interested teens may learn about some of the best native species to plant in your yard while using iNaturalist, a citizen science app, to document the type of species. Registration is required for this free program.
Audubon’s Backyard Nature Series is a group of monthly nature programs. These programs combine natural history, ecology, and citizen science to use in your own backyard! Each month is a new seasonal topic; from fireflies and monarchs, to pollinators and flowers. Take home a wealth of information on making your yard a haven for birds and nature, while being an active participant in science.
