CAMDEN — The Camden Garden Club will welcome Sharon Turner to the Camden Public Library as their guest speaker at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 18. Turner is a certified Master Gardener, consultant, educator and designer based in Washington Her talk, entitled “Birds, Bees and Beneficials,” will emphasize the importance of restoring native plants to the garden to attract native insects and birds. Turner’s motivation to awaken people to the natural world keeps getting stronger as more evidence emerges of damage done. A recent report that bird populations have plummeted 30 percent in the past 50 years provides further impetus to get others landscaping in ways that benefit wildlife.
The Camden Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. The weekly Winter Horticulture Series is free and open to the public and will continue on Tuesdays throughout February. Guests and prospective members are always welcome.
