Guest Speaker Christina Fifer presents Foods for Backyard Birds

On Friday, November 9, at 9:30 am, please join the Seabrook Island Garden Club to welcome guest speaker Christina Fifer. The club meets at the Seabrook Island Lake House.

Among the many delights of Seabrook Island residents and guests is the profusion of wildlife. Birds, in particular, are fascinating and in sheer abundance on the island. There are more than 80 species here, including federally threatened and endangered birds such as the bald eagle and piping plover. Many are routinely spotted in our own backyards. Residents are so intrigued that in 2016, a birding club was started and continues to thrive.

Due to this love of birds, the club has invited Christina Fifer of Wild Birds Unlimited to tell us about best feeding practices and best food to attract and nourish our feathered friends. Christina started her career with Wild Birds Unlimited in Hickory NC and in 2013 she moved to Charleston SC to purchase the Wild Birds Unlimited in West Ashley. Since buying the store she has installed bluebird trails on the West Ashley Greenway. Christina is very focused on community outreach and education. She will be opening a second store in Summerville in the spring of 2019. Christina’s passion is bringing people and nature together.

Be sure to mark your calendars and join the fun as we learn from Christina this month as well as share our own stories and expertise on this interesting and amusing subject.
