Paul Oliver is an avid birder and a co-founder of Urban Nature Store, with seven locations, including their online store www.UrbanNatureStore.ca and the store in Don Mills, offering everything that one needs to enhance the enjoyment of attracting and feeding wild birds.
Paul has been involved in the lawn and garden sector for more than 20 years. He is the founder and managing partner of TreeHelp.com and is actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the Urban Nature Store.
Paul has been feeding birds from a very early age, having initially started the activity with the help and encouragement of his Mom. Bird feeding is a passion he continues today.
Paul’s presentation about “Gardening to Attract Birds” will focus on using different types of feeders, plants and landscape designs to help attract birds to one’s backyard and the importance of making birds feel safe and comfortable in our man-made environment. He will highlight a few steps that can be taken to help our feathered friends survive our harsh winters, and he will also answer some of the common questions that first time “birders” ask about how to attract more and different types of birds.
Paul will also be bringing some feeders and other items for us to see.
