UPCOMING EVENTS

March 18, we will welcome Faith Kuehn whose talk is titled, “Trees for Bees!” 
Before her retirement, Faith served as Environmental Program Administrator for the Delaware Department of Agriculture’s Plant Industries from 2001-2018. Specific program responsibilities included nursery, apiary, noxious weeds, and invasive species. In 2006, she led a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant to catalog native bees in Delaware’s vegetable production areas, and work with farmers to establish bee conservation practices on their farms. In addition to her many accomplishments, Faith serves on the Delaware Native Species Commission.

Currently, Faith manages Green Cabinet, a project that encompasses her interests in pollinator conservation, therapeutic gardens, and artful entomology.

April 22, Earth Day!

Our meeting on this fourth Monday will celebrate the world’s 49th (!) annual Earth Day celebration. Woohoo! And we have booked Doug Tallamy, a renowned area author and speaker, whose topic will be, “Creating Living Landscapes.” He is currently professor and chair of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, where he has taught insect taxonomy, behavioral ecology, and other subjects. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. Doug won the Silver Medal from the Garden Writer’s Association for his book, Bringing Nature Home.

To help cover the cost of the speaker, a $10.00 donation to the Arden Club is suggested.
