David Mizejewski will be the guest speaker at the next Apalachee Audubon Society meeting on Thursday, April 19 from 7pm – 8:30pm. He will focus on restoring wildlife habitat in our cities, towns and neighborhoods through the use of native plants.
David, who holds a degree in Human and Natural Ecology from Emory University, is a naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation in Washington, D. C., as well as a television host, media personality and author. He hosted and co-produced Backyard Habitat, a television series on Animal Planet that showed people how to transform their yards and gardens into thriving habitats for birds and other local wildlife. He is author of the how-to book, Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife.

Native Nurseries’ manager Lilly Anderson-Messec heard David speak at last summer’s Cullowhee Native Plant Conference in North Carolina. She said he was such an engaging and inspiring speaker that we had to bring him to Tallahassee. He conveyed this very valuable topic in an accessible way so that the average homeowner and the experienced gardener alike can see how important it is and how fulfilling it can be to create wildlife habitat in their own yards.
The program takes place at the FSU King Life Science Building, 319 Stadium Drive. There is easy and free parking just south of the King Building. See google map here. There will be a reception at 7pm with announcements at 7:15 followed by the guest speaker.
