In November, as planting season is in full swing, the Southern California Horticultural Society will be hosting a webinar program by Dennis Mudd, a self-taught native plant enthusiast, who founded the Calscape website in 2010 with the goal of enabling small scale nature restoration efforts in California.
In 2014, Mudd donated Calscape to the California Native Plant Society and led development of the site in partnership with CNPS and the Jepson eFlora group at UC Berkeley until 2019. Calscape is currently the largest California native plant website with over two million unique users.
Currently, Mudd is the co-director of the Smart Food Foundation, a non-profit that provides healthy food, cooking and nutrition education to low-income communities in San Diego.
We are looking forward to seeing and hearing Mudd’s presentation and getting new ideas to potentially inspire our own nature restoration gardening projects. Please consider tuning in for this timely and fascinating topic.
The webinar schedule is as follows:
7:10 pm - Webinar opens with SCHS Announcements
7:15 pm - Plant Forum
7:30 pm - Lecture and Q&A with Dennis Mudd
