Ever wonder about all the insects you find on your plants? Are they helpful or not? In how many different ways can plants and insects interact? Come hear entomologist and educator, Dr. Art Evans, at the meeting of the Pocahontas Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society on Thursday, September 5.
This free meeting is open to the public and takes place in the Education and Library Complex of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, 1800 Lakeside Avenue, Richmond, VA. Start time is 7 p.m., but the room is available at 6:30 p.m. so you can come early and get to know others with similar interests. A short business meeting will follow the presentation.
Dr. Evans is well-known for his program "What's Bugging You?" on local public radio, and is the author of "Beetles of Eastern North America" and "Field Guide to Insects and Spiders of North America." His stories and photographs are fun and informative.
The Pocahontas Chapter is one of 12 Virginia Native Plant Society chapters, and serves the counties of Amelia, Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, King William, New Kent, Powhatan, Prince George, and the cities of Colonial Heights, Hopewell, Petersburg, and Richmond. In addition to eight monthly meetings and newsletters, the chapter conducts field trips and holds a May picnic and wildflower walk.
Membership in a chapter is available to anyone who joins the Virginia Native Plant Society. VNPS members enjoy the natural world and support efforts to preserve Virginia’s native plants. Ranging in age from students to seniors, members are professionals, knowledgeable amateurs and many who are just beginning to learn about our flora. While some members join enthusiastically in activities, others help out occasionally or support the society solely with their memberships and their interest. All are welcome.
