Author Pete Haggard will offer folks the tools needed to build habitat for songbirds, insects, native bees and other wildlife.
Haggard’s presentation Sunday is the latest nature program sponsored by the Tolowa Dunes Stewards and the Redwood Parks Association. Haggard will focus on native plants that can thrive on the North Coast.
Haggard said he will put an emphasis on drought-tolerant plants, although most native species are already used to the area’s rainy winters and dry summers.
“The exceptions would be the ones that grow along streams where they get a source of water and maybe some high mountain places where the summer is short enough,” he said.
