Have you read about the declining bird and pollinator populations? Are you curious about the causes, remedies, and how to help? Join us for a free class that discusses all of this, presented by South Pasadena Beautiful over Zoom on Sunday, May 2nd at 4 PM. Please visit the “Events” page at for the Zoom link.

We have embraced a gardening style in which neatness and orderliness are equated with health and success. This has contributed to environmental decline with a staggering loss of species, including beloved songbirds and butterflies. But there is another way. By working with nature, we can restore habitat in our own gardens, sharing this space with birds, lizards, and pollinators, including beautiful monarch butterflies.

This talk will present compelling information on why gardening for habitat is so important, and practical tips on how to convert a resource-intensive yard to a natural, interesting, and fun garden that provides sanctuary for many critters, including those of the human persuasion.
