Create Habitat and Give Back to Nature with California Native Plants

January 26, 2019 - 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

San Diego

CNPS-San Diego is excited to present a day-long workshop that includes three presentations along with an extensive 100-minute native gardening seminar on understanding and nurturing the relationships of wildlife and California native plants. Topics include California native gardening for habitat; native insects, bird and bees; and principles of permaculture and polyculture in the native habitat garden. The day will conclude with a presentation of a renowned model habitat California native garden-the Gottlieb Native Garden in Beverly Hills. The workshop will be held in the beautiful, contemporary auditorium (stars on the ceiling!) of the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. An extended 80-minute lunch ‘hour’ will allow you to picnic or dine in the park as you discuss and absorb the morning presentations. Nearby exhibit native gardens will be available for viewing.
