In response to Mike's email about native plants to attract birds to the schoolyard area, I found a mini-grant that is available to educators for that very purpose. The Virginia Chapter of the Wildlife Society's webpage http://fwie.fw.vt.edu/vatws/ details the mini-grant. It looks like the contact listed there may have many ideas and suggestions for this project. I also have researched on the Audubon At Home webpage, which has information about plantings. http://www.audubon.org/bird/at_home/index.html Good luck attracting birds, hope these resources are helpful.
