Garden Plants from Riparian Woodlands

Submitted By Barbara Stratton

Friends of the Milpitas Library and the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society will present a free program Thursday, August 4 on Garden Plants from Riparian Woodlands led by Deanna Giuliano. The riparian plant community is home to a variety of California natives suitable for moist places in the greater Bay Area. If you have a wet location in your garden or live near a stream, creek or river, you will be especially interested in the wide range of trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials available - all of which provide habitat for local birds, insects and other wildlife.

Giuliano has been a native plant nursery specialist for eight years and has managed the Acterra Restoration Nursery in Palo Alto for the past five years.

A two-mile hike with the California Native Plant Society will follow the August 4 presentation on Sunday, August 7 to inspire you to plant your own riparian garden. The hike will be from 10 a.m. to noon along Calero Creek, Calero County Park in south San Jose, crossing the creek in a few places, seeing meadows, sycamores, and upland oak woodlands. For more information on the hike, please contact Carolyn Dorsch at cdorsch1@aol.com or (650) 804-6162
