DATE: Wednesday, April 20
TIME: 12:00 – 3:00 p.m.
LED BY: MMWD staff
LOCATION: Lake Lagunitas parking lot
Drop by and discuss native wildflowers and the pollinators they are aiming to attract! MMWD staff will talk about the different techniques and growth patterns our very own native plants use to seduce, manipulate and advertise to pollinators. We’ll give you some tips for drawing anatomically-correct native flowers, and you can wander into the adjoining meadow to try your hand at field sketching using your newly acquired techniques. In addition, folks can make and take home a paper pot planted with native lupine seeds. The event is family friendly and fun for ages 10 and up.
Attendees should wear: Clothes for the field
Attendees should bring: If you have your own sketchbook or field notebook, feel free to bring it.
Event leader will supply: Pencils and homemade sketchbooks will be provided, as well as materials for lupine pots and lupine seeds.
