“Pollinators, Pests and Predators”
Speaker Curt Decker, Natural Resource Specialist, Fossil Rim Wildlife Center
Join us on September 9, 2013 for our Community Horticulture Education Series program “Pollinators, Pests and Predators”. Curt Decker, Natural Resources Specialist at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center will examine the various arthropods we might come across in the garden and the various roles they play. By nearly any measure, the most successful animals on the planet are the arthropods . . . the REAL rulers of the Earth!
Curt will explore those commonly considered “beneficial” (pollinators and those that control “pests”) as well as some that might surprise us in how they fit into a gardens health. Discussion will involve ways we can encourage the desired ones and what we can do to discourage those we would rather not have. Each and every critter has a role to play and the more you know about the subject the better off your growing plants will be. Curt is extremely knowledgeable about all things that creep and crawl about on the ground or buzz about in the air and loves to share one of his favorite passions. You are sure to learn AND be entertained as well!
This program is FREE and open to the public! Children are certainly welcome and encouraged, too! Door prizes will be given out as well!
