Big Bad Bugs: Identifying Threats to your Garden
(click here to purchase tickets)
Thursday, November 20
Plant pests and diseases kill millions of trees, both in our neighborhoods and in natural areas. In addition to threatening the beauty of your lawn and landscape, this damage has a negative impact on vital ecosystem services like clean air and water and costs billions of dollars in cleanup and lost revenue. Cheekwood is actively collaborating with other gardens and organizations to spread the word about how we can protect our community. Want to help? Learn how you can become a citizen scientist and aid plant conservation by becoming a first detector in your community.
