The “Gardening for Wildlife Series” comes to an end this Friday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m. after six months of continuous presentations, lectures and field trips hosted by the Friends of the Rickman Store.
Brent Martin, Southeast Representative of The Wilderness Society, will close the series with the program ‘Hug a Bug! Love a Bee! Save a Tree!’ Martin will talk about the concept of putting a value on nature’s free services, such as intact forests, backyard trees, birds, bees, bats and the many insects that are not only wild pollinators but pest control agents as well.
Martin will explain how nature’s gifts are undervalued but vital to the health and sustainability of our planet; and most importantly, how we, as individuals, can work to protect natural systems in our own neighborhoods.
