April 2010 Newsletter

April 7, 7:30pm
Quimper Grange
1219 Corona Street (End of Sheridan)

Wednesday, April 7th, Quimper Grange hosts
naturalist Jill Silver who will talk on the virtues of
specific native plants and how to plant them to attract
the sights, sounds and activities of birds, owls, frogs
and other amphibians as well as hummingbirds and
butterflies. She will describe the relationships between
specific species and their favorite host plants and how to create shelter which provides flowers,
berries, beautiful bark, foliage and privacy screening. Jill will present a practice and philosophy of
landscaping that will keep wildlife alive and healthy in your yard for years to come.

Jill is a forest/watershed ecologist and naturalist whose work focuses on supporting local
environmental and economic sustainability. She is Executive Director of the 10,000 Years Institute, is
on the board of five environmental groups and is an avid bird watcher. Jill lives happily in her North
Beach home where she communes with over 45 species of birds and 5 species of amphibians and
reptiles and their favorite plants, shrubs and trees.

The program starts at 7:30 pm and is preceded by a potluck dessert/fingerfood social half-hour from 7pm
to 7:30pm. Suggested donation: $5-$10. For further information contact: Jo Yount at 385-0456.

Hope to see you at the dance and program this month!
