Native Plants for Butterflies in Your East Bay Garden
Liam O’Brien, lepidopterist
A talk focused on native plants female butterflies need to lay their eggs on that you can grow in your East Bay garden. Think about what you can serve the caterpillars to munch on and continue their life cycles. The talk will be illustrated by Liam’s beautiful paintings of butterflies.
Talented vendors who offer nature-related items will enrich the Plant Fair. Caitlin Blair Harvey will offer jewelry and sculptures inspired by the wild rivers and beaches of Northern California. Local artist/photographer Dianne Lake will bring photos of the Bay Area that capture its special beauty and light. Others vendors and volunteers will offer hard-to-find books, posters from numerous naturalist organizations, seeds to grow native plants, and much more.
