Our first guest speaker is Richard Maxfield, speaking on “Habitat Enhancements Which Support Our Wildlife Natives”. We all have wildlife of some sort that enjoys what we plant in our gardens and
After lunch, Kathy Keeler, from Loveland, will educate us with stories about some of those plants we see in the world around us. Kathy is known as “A Wondering Botanist”, and will tell us about “Stories of Common Plants, Milkweed, Iris, and More”. This widely traveled plant expert has traveled to over 25 countries and all 50 states searching out stories about travel, history, and plants. She is the author of “A Wondering Botanist” Blog, as well as the author of books, essays and technical publications.
Nancy B. Jones, a beekeeper keeper, is our last speaker and she will talk about how she started planting a garden then invited the bees to come and enjoy. Nancy lives in the Loveland area; and
she is just the person to talk to us about planting a garden that will invite ALL of the pollinators to come and spend the summer with you.
Come and Have Fun with Us!
