SB/SBR EVENTS &
Gardeners Exchange in conjunction with the SaddleBrooke/Saddlebrooke
Ranch Master Gardeners
welcomes you to attend "Sustaining
Wildlife with Native Plants,"
presented by Hillary Cox
Wed. April 25 at 1 pm, La Hacienda Club at SaddleBrooke Ranch.
Ms. Cox's presentation is based on Doug Tallamy's book Bringing Nature Home
explaining how everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a
significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity. The use of
native plants and water harvesting are key ingredients to helping
wildlife, especially in our southern Arizona habitats.
British-born Hilary Cox has lived in Arizona for more than five
years. Ms. Cox owns her own garden design business, Leescapes Garden
Design. Her gardens and articles have been featured in magazines
(Fine Gardening etc.), on TV and on major industry conference tours.
Her upcoming book,
A Gardener's Guide to Prairie Plants
will soon be released by Chicago University Press. Ms. Cox has
monitored plants and wildlife on the phenology trail at Oracle State
Park for the USA National Phenology Network. More recently she has
been part of the restoration of the garden terraces at the Kannally
Open seating. For more information, please
