Wildflower Festival Follow-up

We had clear blue skies and temps in the mid-70's for the Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival last Saturday - perfect weather for a day outside. Over 1500 people came for the nature walks, workshops, kids activities, food vendors and artists. 

Our booth stayed busy all day. The suet logs, bee houses and our new recycled bottle bird feeders were all popular and sold well, as did our gourd bird houses.

We spoke with a LOT of people who were interested in creating habitats for wildlife in their own yards. Topics included squirrel deterrence, pesticide alternatives, native plants, bird ID, bee house placement and "no waste" bird seed.

It was great to see families spending the day together, learning about the environment and taking the time to enjoy Nature's beauty.

We look forward to participating in next year's event.
