"Attracting Beneficial Insects To Your Vegetable
Garden Using Native Wildflowers"
Dave Tomashefski, Meadow City Nursery

September 26, Tuesday @ 6:30 pm via Zoom

Native wildflowers provide pollen and nectar resources to a wide range of beneficial insects. These insects include pollinators like bees as well as predators like lady beetles and minute pirate bugs which help control populations of garden pests. This presentation outlines the role of beneficial insects in the vegetable garden and describes a series of native wildflowers that can be planted along the garden border to attract beneficial insects throughout the growing season.

Euclid Creek's New Eastern Ledge Trail
Roy Larick, PhD, Bluestone Heights

Euclid Creek Reservation
Eastern Ledge Trail west trailhead
at the Welsh Woods south parking lot

850 Euclid Creek Parkway, Cleveland, OH
Strenuous Hike & Accessible Option
Registration Closed

In 1918, the Euclid Creek Reservation opened on 473 acres of creek floodplain. In 2019, Metroparks acquired 63 acres of bluestone ledge from an east-adjacent failed residential development. We hike the new trail that connects the Welch Woods floodplain (Euclid) with the new Eastern Ledge area (Richmond Hts). Our 100 ft climb sees a dramatic ecological shift from conserved floodplain forest to disturbed ledge prairies and wetlands. The hike highlight is a legacy stand of chestnut oaks (Quercus montana) clinging to the ledge rim.   
For those who would like to hear Dr. Larick’s talk but can’t climb, there is an accessible trail to the observation deck from another Metroparks entrance on Donna Drive. Donna Dr. is at the top of hill past the main Metroparks entrance on Highland Rd. The Donna Dr. trailhead’s closest address is 4446 Rabun Ln, Richmond Heights 41.546951, -81.519955. (You can Park on Donna Dr.) It would be about a 15-20 minute walk to the observation deck to meet the Roy Larick climbing group. Time yourself accordingly for their arrival.
