Bring your Garden to Life with California Native Plants, a talk by Vivian Neou 
Monday, March 18, 2024 06:00pm

Is your garden a “bar” that only offers nectar to adult butterflies but no food for their offspring? Do the birds and bees visiting your garden have everything they need to raise the next generation? By growing California native plants that feed your local ecosystem, you can:

  • Attract more bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife to your garden

  • Help save local species that are in decline

  • Enjoy a lush, low water landscape

  • Engage with neighbors to build back habitat throughout your community

Join us for this lively discussion as we explore the best California native plants for boosting biodiversity in our gardens and beyond. Attendees will receive a free packet of California native wildflowers to try out in their own gardens.

Vivian Neou is the Board President of the California Native Plant Society. She is a retired software executive. She became interested in native plants after she retired and became a docent with the Midpeninsula Open Space District. She's the Co- President of our Chapter of CNPS and manages the Chapter’s nursery. Vivian enjoys leading hikes for Midpeninsula Open Space District, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve and Edgewood Park & Natural Preserve.
