Beneficial Insects for the Garden – Workshop Saturday July 8th at 10am

The CCGA Education Committee is hosting a new workshop!

Do you need an army of green lacewings, a crew of lady beetles, or a stagmomantid team to help in your garden? Come meet the good bugs that provide natural pest control in our landscapes and gardens.

Join Allen Lawrance, Associate Curator of Entomology at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, for an exciting and informative workshop about beneficial insects for the garden.

Pollinators, predators, and parasitoids are among the many insects you may be delighted to find in your garden. By helping plants reproduce and controlling pests these beneficial insects provide valuable ecosystem services that can help reduce our reliance on insecticides. Learn about some of the various species of beneficial insects you may encounter and how to encourage them to inhabit your garden.

Date: Saturday July 8th at 10am

Location: Chicago Center for Green Technology (CCGT), 445 N. Sacramento Blvd. Chicago IL 60612.

The workshop is free, but seating is limited, so please RSVP your intention to attend: REGISTER HERE.
