Description:

Don't miss this FREE program that focuses on our local plant life, climate change, the most up-to-date research, and an emerging naturalist program.


Dr. Cameron Barrows, research ecologist for UCR's Center for Conservation Biology, and Janet Hartin, environmental horticulture advisor for UC Cooperative Extension, will discuss how:


* Drought, heat stress, and root damage resulting from construction damage and cramped underground rooting space can lead to stressed trees.


* Over-reliance on too few species can reduce important biodiversity, natural predators, and pollinators, as well as increase damage from introduced insects and diseases.


* Ecological justice matters in your backyard. 


 


PLUS: UCCE Master Gardeners will be selling succulents, cactus, and other desert-frlendly plants at the workshop. Prices will range between $3 and $10. Cash or check only.
