Steven A. Wright, Director of Horticulture/Curator of Plant Collections, Jenkins Arboretum and gardens knows that the environmental importance of bees, birds, butterflies, bugs and bats is immeasurable. Diversity of both plant and animal species is key to maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Of course, this diversity also provides beauty beyond our wildest imaginations. As our environment struggles against pollution, habitat loss, invasive species, and over-use of pesticides, it is up to us to do whatever we can to ensure that nature's beauty will forever endure. Throughout this presentation, Steve will discuss numerous techniques to attract the 5 Bs to your garden, specifically highlighting food, water, and nesting needs. 6:30 PM Meet and Greet 7:00 PM Program The program is free, open to the public
