Native Plants and Pollinator Gardens by Juanita Salisbury

Juanita Salisbury gave this presentation as part of the Gardening with Natives lecture series on August 13, 2019 at the CupertinoLibrary. Native plants are integral to an effective pollinator garden design. Based on functions within the ecosystem, the speaker will explore the interrelationships between plants, pollinators, other insects and animals. The goal is to allow you to design pollinator gardens, thereby leveraging California's wealth of biodiversity into more resilient--and beautiful--landscapes.
