James Hogue, Ph.D.
Entomologist - California State University, Northridge
"Butterfly Gardens of Southern California"
We are delighted to welcome Dr. James Hogue as our speaker for March. Dr. Hogue grew up in Los Angeles and attended UCLA receiving a Bachelor's Degree of Science in biology. At Utah State University he focused on aquatic ecology and received both Master's and Doctorate in the field. He is the current manager of biological collections and a part-time lecturer at California State University Northridge. His talk will focus on Butterflies in southern California, their species types, habitats, and what types of flora and
fauna attract butterflies to a garden.
The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.
The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.
PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
