Hidden Wildlife –
by Dena Wild
Our yards are populated by creatures that seem insignificant but have important roles for the health of our plants. Lady beetles and dragonflies are among the insects that prey on plant-feeding insects. Anoles help keep unwanted insects in control. Lowly worms are essential to the richness of soil. Black racers are slithering garbage cans eating unwanted garden nuances.
Orange Audubon Society’s (OAS) December 21st program will be presented by OAS board member Dena Wild, an avid gardener and Orange County Master Gardener who presents talks and workshops on all aspects of home horticulture. This entertaining presentation will share history and folklore of beneficial insects and other welcomed crawling critters, will help you identify these "garden jewels," and appreciate their roles in our gardens. Suitable for naturalists and gardeners of all ages.
For additional information, (407) 648-9814.
