Each native plant species has a suite of host-specific insects that depend on it for food. Even allowing a single "weed" to grow in your garden can significantly increase its habitat value, and choosing to plant native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers will cause your yard to teem with life. Using a number of common New England plants as examples, Charley will introduce you to some of these insects, their natural history and signs of their presence to look for on their host plants. His close-up photos will provide an unusual perspective on the tiny animals that are going about their lives right under our noses. His book “Tracks & Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates” will be available for purchase.
