Annies Annuals: Beyond Pollinator Gardens – How to Support Regional Biodiversity! A Free talk with Sarah Sutton, author of Kiss Your Grass Goodbye

Invite nature into your garden and help support vital biodiversity in our communities!  Nature needs our help! And the good news is, by planting in our gardens many of the key native plants that our local birds, native bees, beneficial insects, and more have co-evolved with, we can support our diverse local and regional food web and increase wildlife resilience. Sarah Sutton, ASLA, APLD, and RQP will introduce key urban biodiversity challenges and how to select and include beautiful native plants in your gardens and landscapes for maximum wildlife benefits. Truly, plant them, and they will come!
