She will be sharing her knowledge regarding Dragonflies and their Habitat. Rose currently contracts with several environmental organizations, including Atlanta Audubon Society, Dunwoody Nature Center, Blue Heron Nature Preserve, City of Sandy Springs Rec/Parks, Chattahoochee Nature Center to share her knowledge of many species in Georgia. We will resume our potluck dinners in June, but you’re welcome to bring an individually wrapped dessert to share beginning at 6:30PM. Our program will begin at 7:00PM.

JUNE — A nature advocate and wildlife photographer and a Hall County Master Gardener, Karin Hicks will be speaking on “Creating a Hedgerow for Wildlife.”  Hedgerows have an important role to play in restoring biodiversity in our gardens.  Unlike traditional garden hedges, which are typically one species, grouping together different plants creates a dynamic hedge that brings beauty and vitality to the landscape while yielding big ecological benefits.  Join us for a pot luck supper (bring a dish to share) at 6:30PM at Bethesda Senior Center on June 20th. A short meeting will start at 7PM with Karin’s presentation following.
