Event Details

The Program: Do you look out the window and find your roses beheaded?  Are your carefully cultivated fruits and vegetables partially eaten?  Or, have your plants disappeared in entirety?  It’s likely your garden is being appreciated by deer, raccoons, gophers or rats.  Come and get information and techniques to help home gardeners cope with these pests. Part 2 in the series will focus on deer, rats and squirrels.

The Speaker: Lois Stevens has been a UC Marin Master Gardener since 2008 and been gardening for nearly 50 years. She currently chairs the Marin Master Gardener Help Desk service, has been responsible for training new Master Gardeners, served on the Board of Directors, and makes presentations about the Master Gardener program and garden related topics at events such as this.
