Nature’s Best-Kept Secret: The Perfect Habitat for Local

Rose Madrone

On Wednesday, May 10, the Port Ludlow Garden Club will present “Native Plants for Pollinators” with guest speaker Rose Madrone. The lecture will be an informa- tive and inspiring look at how gardeners can help reverse declining pollinator populations by including native plants.

Pollinators are essential to our food supply and the health of our ecosystems. Unfortunately, many species of native pollinators and domesticated bee populations are rapidly declining due to increasing threats to habitat loss throughout the lowlands of the Pacific Northwest.

Madrone, a botanist, filmmaker, educator, and herbalist with a strong foundation in the world of plants, will explain the need to introduce native plants into the landscape. She will discuss ideas for creating and maintaining habitats and plant selection.

This presentation will take place at the Beach Club, 121 Marina View Drive, Port Ludlow, at 11 a.m. The event is open to all garden enthusiasts and is free for PLGC members and $5 for non- members. Seating is limited! We encourage all attendees to RSVP to a2112g|||plvoice|||org|||RSVP Madrone by Monday, May 1.
