11:00AM, Dr. Leon Baginski
How native plants create a haven for local wildlife
Dr. Leon will be speaking on the use of native plants to attract butterflies and other pollinators and to create a haven for local wildlife. The use of ‘California friendly’ plants is unfortunately a misnomer since California friendly only refers to water use. To be truly California friendly you need to incorporate all of what California is about and that includes butterflies and other insects, birds and even reptiles.
