Butterflies, Birds and Bees - oh my! If you are fond of these charismatic pollinators and want to see more of them in your garden then this is the event for you!

Join Daily Acts and the Laguna Foundation for this informative evening, where we will learn from local experts on how to build habitat in our gardens to support pollinators and other wildlife. With presenters from three amazing organizations - the Sonoma County Master Gardeners, Native Songbirds Care & Conservation and the Sonoma County Bee Keepers there is sure to be something for everyone! The talk will be followed by a tour of the Laguna Environmental Center native plant garden which incorporates pollinator friendly and habitat providing plants.

Suzanne Clarke, a Sonoma County Master Gardener will focus on how to incorporate nectar and larval food sources into our gardens to provide habitat for our local butterflies.

Veronica Bower, Director of Native Songbird Care & Conservation will detail how to create habitat for nesting songbirds which can also be a huge help with pest problems among other garden benefits. 


Ellen Sherron, a member of the Sonoma County Beekeepers will cover how best to provide four-season flowering and other practices in the garden to keep are hardest working pollinators satiated.
