Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.


Encouraging Indigenous Wildlife, Insects to Birds, in the Garden

When: Wed., Sept. 14, 7:30 p.m. 2022

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 northcoastcnps.org 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. The live event is preceded by a social gathering at 7 P.M. and a used botanical book sale, including hundreds of donated field guides, textbooks, gardening guides, taxonomic works, etc. Pay what you can afford. CNPS hosts free public presentations on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May. 707-822-2015, www.northcoastcnps.org.
