Learn how to design unique plant palettes and maintenance schedules for your garden that provide support for our local wildlife. As we work to preserve and protect our local biodiversity, home gardens and urban landscapes are often underutilized spaces that can be turned into corridors that provide for the little creatures we so admire and depend on.
Students will come away with best practices and insights into observing your own local wildlife and easy steps to provide for them.
Meets on June 17. $30 members, $35 non-members. Advance registration required, register here.

About 0 Horizon: Art of the Forest Floor
0 Horizon: Art of the Forest Floor examines a wealth of subject matter that exists in the parasitological ecosystem of the forest floor. The coexistence of the parasite and the host helps to complete life cycles in some species and the coevolution of both. The exhibition will be installed to create an immersive environment containing works of all media that serves as a metaphor for the mutualism needed to contribute to the earth’s sustainability.
The works in the exhibition will depict nature’s underworld; a wondrous display of decay, slime, parasites, worms, beetles, mushrooms, roots, and the detritus of animals and humans.
0 Horizon: Art of the Forest Floor is open at the Sturt Haaga Gallery from June 17 through August 27, 10am–4pm daily. Entry to the Sturt Haaga Gallery is included with admission to Descanso Gardens, no reservations required.
0 Horizon: Art of the Forest Floor is funded in part by Heather and Paul Haaga.
