2) "Encouraging Indigenous Wildlife, Insects to Birds, in the Garden," Sept. 14

The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) invites the public to a presentation, "Encouraging Indigenous Wildlife, Insects to Birds, in the Garden," on Wednesday, September 14, at 7:30 P.M., at Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, 251 Bayside Rd. Arcata. Or visit for a Zoom link to the presentation. Pete Haggard will tell how he and his wife Judy, over a period of 45 years, converted their dry pasture in Fieldbrook into a food garden and a native plant and wildlife garden. Despite a few failures along the way, their gardens now have over 50 species of native bees and many species of butterflies. And their slug and snail problems decreased as the predator beetles in the garden increased. Pete is the Garden Chair for the CNPS North Coast Chapter. He and Judy co-authored Insects of the Pacific Northwest, an essential field guide. CNPS hosts free public presentations on the second Wednesday of each month.
