April Speaking Engagements

Montana Wildlife Gardener is heading south for some speaking engagements- first all the way to Hamilton, Montana, and then Gillette, Wyoming.

On Thursday, April 12, I will be presenting to the The Green Thumbs Up garden club. The meeting is at 2:00 in the Community Meeting Room, in the downstairs of the Bitterroot Public Library. I will discuss how to use native plants to reduce water use, attract birds, butterflies and other insects to your garden.

A follow-up field trip to visit our own native plant garden in Missoula is scheduled for July 12 with the Green Thumbs Up garden club.

I'm looking forward to meeting with this club, and the meeting is free and open to the public. For further information, telephone Susan Duff, 961-5455.

At the end of the month, I will be heading further south and east to present at the Wyoming Master Gardener Conference in Gillette at the College..

My program is titled "Gardening with Native Plants for Wildlife" and I am the evening speaker,  Friday, April 27,  8-9 pm.

This conference is open to the public and you do not need to be a Master Gardener to attend. The conference theme is Rethinking Gardening in the 21st Century, and the conference will bring together authors, Master Gardeners, vendors, horticulture experts, keynote speakers, and backyard gardeners to share enthusiasm and knowledge.

The agenda looks great and I am excited about heading south for a tropical vacation.  Kidding about the last part, but the conference looks fantastic.
