OUR APRIL 2020 VIRTUAL PROGRAM

This months virtual presentation is graciously provided by Anne Sannsone.

Motivated by her love for our Texas prairies, (the most endangered ecosystem in North America), GDOGC Member, Ann Sansone, was determined to provide a haven for the diminishing populations of native bees, monarchs, insects, and birds.

Ann’s presentation will focus on how you can transform your space into a native plant garden in a way that is practical and easy- “set it and forget it”!

Highlights include information and photos of the 40+ species of native plants from her own garden and of the insects (including pollinators) they attract.
