Gardening with Wildlife
Wednesday, February 12, 7:30 pm
** Room Change - This meeting only **
Regional Room - Dublin Civic Center, 100 Civic Plaza, Dublin CA
Across from the Library
Deer are eating the roses, raccoons are rolling up the lawn, and gophers are doing unthinkable things beneath your garden beds. Before Googling exterminators, Joan Morris will offer tips on getting along with your backyard visitors and steps to take to discourage them. It's all about balance and accepting that we have to share our spaces.
Joan Morris has been a journalist for almost 42 years, beginning her career in a small town in New Mexico. She joined the then-Contra Costa Times in 1988, and has several assignments from the Death and Dying reporter to Home and Garden editor and now, Pets and Wildlife columnist. She lives in Brentwood with two sisters and her dog, Bailey, and is never bothered, annoyed or pestered by wildlife. That last part might not be completely accurate. ~ Barbara Norkus
