The San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is excited to present a monthly bird walk series which explores the intersection of birds and botany. Join us from 8 to 10 AM on the last Thursday of the month for our 2 hour walk with long-time garden volunteer Ken Levine and avian expert Mark Mushkat.
Many plant lovers and many bird watchers enjoy their passions without much regard to how these two realms interact. Yet the links between birds and flora are critical to each, from pollination to seed distribution to nesting and shelter. This walk, led by Mark Mushkat and Ken Levine, studies birdlife amongst the plants of the botanical garden. The focus will be on which avian species are drawn to certain plants, what’s gained or lost in the exchange, and how this understanding can shape your own landscaping efforts to the benefit of fauna and flora. Allowing for a two-hour exploration, on mostly flat terrain, we expect to see and hear a wide variety of avian species as they feed, hide, nest, and defend territory in the garden’s lush habitat.
