Are you little squeamish about bugs in your garden, squishing or spraying everything in sight? You may be eliminating insects that turn into beautiful butterflies, or food that could attract colorful birds to your garden. Learn how to identify the good ones and what can be done about the bad ones in an eco-friendly manner. Find out what various insects have to offer and what their purpose is in nature. If you would like to have a specific insect identified, bring it to class in a sealed plastic bag. To register, send your name, class request, number of people attending, and phone number via email to Julie@manhattanbeachbotanicalgarden.org.
