California Native Plant Society meeting & news | Monday. Act Now.

September 12, 2021

The South Coast Chapter of the California Native Plant Society has a meeting & program tomorrow, Monday 13 Sep 2021.


Speaker: Scot Pipkin

For many of us, gardens are more than places to grow food or pretty flowers. If we want to create rich, diverse, and resilient habitats in our yards and communities, we have to start with the appropriate native plants. They provide an opportunity to attract a variety of local wildlife and cultivate healthy natural systems. One of the best indicators of a successful habitat garden is the bird life it attracts. In this talk, we will look at the important role native plants play in providing our local birds with the food, shelter, and nesting materials necessary for survival. We will also examine how the use of native plants and fundamental design principles can contribute to a sense of sanctuary and well-being for the people in our garden spaces. Taking a deep dive into the major food groups birds need (fruits, seeds, insects, and nectar), Scot will talk about native California species that are readily available and will be sure to enhance the habitat quality of your garden.
