Learn how to create bird habitat in your garden at this Habitat Hero workshop in partnership with Cheyenne-High Plains Audubon Society.

He is an international plant explorer and the Denver Botanic Gardens’ senior curator and director of outreach. Kelaidis has designed plantings for many of the gardens at Denver Botanic Gardens and is particularly noted for the Rock Alpine Garden plantings. He has introduced hundreds of native ornamentals from throughout the Western United States to general horticulture.
Certified Cheyenne Habitat Heroes will explain Native Plant Gardening 101, including the steps for planning, installing and maintaining a native plant Habitat Hero garden for birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife.
