February 18, 2020
Speaker: Sharon Turner, Master Gardener
Topic: “Birds, Bees and Beneficials”
The Camden Garden Club will welcome Sharon Turner to the Camden Public Library as their guest speaker on February 18 at 10:00 a.m. Turner is a certified Master Gardener, consultant, educator and designer based in Washington, Maine. Her talk, entitled “Birds, Bees and Beneficials,” will emphasize the importance of restoring native plants to the garden to attract native insects and birds. Turner’s motivation to awaken people to the natural world keeps getting stronger as more evidence emerges of damage done. A recent report that bird populations have plummeted 30 percent in the past 50 years provides further impetus to get others landscaping in ways that benefit wildlife.
