March 5: Thursday Evening Program: Native Plants for Birds and Butterflies in Northwest Florida by Gabriel Campbell
Many of the plants used for landscaping in Northwest Florida are non-native, and local birds and butterflies are often not adapted to these plants. University of Florida Graduate Research Assistant Gabriel Campbell will discuss native plants for Northwest Florida yards and gardens that are particularly beneficial to birds and butterflies in our area.
The presentation will be held at the Northwest Florida State College Niceville campus in room 302 of Building 400 (Student Services Center or “Raider Central”. Socializing begins at 6:30 PM and the program at 7:00 PM. Admission is free and open to the public. Contact Dave Clausen at (907) 321-3701 for more information.
