Description

LOWER LAKE, Calif. – “Birds, Buds and Bugs: Nurturing the Web of Life” is the topic of the meeting on Thursday, Feb. 20, of the Redbud Audubon chapter at the Methodist Church Social Hall in Lower Lake starting at 7 p.m.

The speaker, Kate Marianchild, is the author of the popular book, “Secrets of the Oak Woodlands: Plants and Animals among California’s Oaks.”

She gives talks and leads walks throughout central and northern California and has spoken to Redbud Audubon several times in past years.

Marianchild’s presentation will consist of the first part of a video, “The Living Landscape,” followed by a slideshow on related subjects.

After showing The Living Landscape, which depicts only east coast species, Marianchild will “bring the food web home” to Lake and Mendocino counties, with fascinating facts and colorful images of our local butterflies, moths, birds, and the native plants that sustain them.

Marianchild also will discuss the devastating effects of neonicotinoid insecticides, their role in the insect apocalypse, and what we can do about them.

The program will be followed by a discussion and Q&A session. Handouts will be provided that will help you determine which locally available native host plants would be appropriate for your garden and yard.

She will also bring copies of her book, “Secrets of the Oak Woodlands,” her new laminated two-sided full-color guide “Identifying the Common Oaks of Northern California” and close-focusing binoculars, which she says will change your nature-viewing life.

The presentation is free and open to the public.
