Thursday, September 28th at 1pm
Do you like to wake up to birdsong, to watch bright insects flutter from flower to flower, and to protect pollinators that are critical for reproduction of many plants?  If so, learn how we can attract and support these creatures that bring so much life and beauty to our landscapes.  This sumptuously-illustrated presentation will teach you the basics about creating habitat on your property, be it a balcony or a multi-acre rural spread.  Learn what they need, throughout their lifecycles, and how we can ensure that it is available to them.  Informational handouts will be provided. Presented by Ruth Axelrod. Ruth is a member of the speakers’ panel for the Speaking for Wildlife program, which educates people about the needs of local wildlife and what they can do to help maintain their habitats. 

Ruth was a healthcare operations manager and then a professor of leadership and human behavior in organizations.  In retirement she has been devoting much of her time to  volunteer work (including professional management consulting, sharing her environmental knowledge through public speaking, and developing gardens for nonprofit organizations), reads, researches whatever strikes her fancy, camps and explores natural places, and pursues various creative hobbies.  She has a master’s degree in business and a Ph.D. in management.
