Santa Fe Lecture: “Save a Place for Wildlife”

The Santa Fe Chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico presents a free talk by George Miller entitled,“Save a Place for Wildlife.” The meeting and talk is on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 6:30 pm at Christ Lutheran Church.

Human housing disrupts the complex web of life from soil microorganisms to the butterflies, bees, birds, and small mammals that once lived here. By purposefully landscaping with native plants we can repair the habitat one yard at a time. He will discuss the back yard basics and plants that will create an oasis for wildlife in a desert of gravel lawns, alien plants, pavement and parking lots.
George Miller is an environmental photojournalist and naturalist and author of “Landscaping with Native Plants of the Southwest.” He has written filed guides and smartphone apps for wildflowers of New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, and Southern California. Currently he is president of the Albuquerque Chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico.
