Hidden Wildlife

Garden Jewels

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.

7-8:30 p.m. Programs are free and no reservations are necessary. Sponsored by Orange Audubon Society www.orangeaudubonfl.org. Programs are held in the Camellia Room of Leu Gardens,1920 N. Forest Avenue, Orlando (for directions, visit http://www.leugardens.org/plan/directions.htm).
