OSPREY, FL (February 26, 2017) Did you ever wonder about a bug in your yard? Which bugs are Florida-friendly in your garden? Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast hosts a morning workshop focused on pests and pollinators in your yard and garden on Wednesday, March 1, from 9:30 am to 11:00 am.

The workshop is led by Wilma Holley, who has taught and lived the core principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping for more than a decade. She is a program specialist for the Florida-Friendly Landscaping Program with the University of Florida/IFAS Extension and Sustainability Sarasota County.
