Are you battling pests in your urban garden? Can’t tell the difference between the “good” bugs and the “bad” bugs? Meet the beetles, bugs, flies, lacewings and other invertebrates such as spiders and centipedes that work around the clock to provide free pest control. You will discover plant types and management practices that provide habitat to attract and sustain beneficial insects that help your garden thrive. You’ll also learn how to keep an eye out for some of the invasive insect pests that currently threaten our state.

Please note that this class will focus on the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

Although Leach Botanical Garden typically hosts these workshops in our Manor House Fireplace Room, during the pandemic, we are delighted to continue hosting them on our website and to join EMSWCD events online.

Please contact Rhesa at (503) 222-7645 or rhesa@emswcd.org for information on accessibility or accommodation.
