Oaktown Native Plant Nursery: “Learning to Recognize Beneficial Insects in the Garden”

Cost: Free!

Discover the fascinating world of beneficial insects as they thrive in Oaktown’s Native Plant Nursery. Many of our important pollinators and pest predators go unrecognized. Discover some of these amazing creatures, including our very beautiful, incredibly acrobatic, native flies! Learn why these little critters are worth a second look. Learn tips and techniques to find these garden dwellers, and use a magiscope, hand lenses and clip-on lenses for your phone to observe the invertebrate world!

This program is part of the "Bringing Back the Natives" garden tour, May 5 & 6 2018
