A Presentation By Debra Kiefel
Do you ever wish you could become part of a movement to help restore eco systems right in your own back and front yards, or from your balcony if you are an apartment dweller? Do you wish there was something more you could do to help create habitats for endangered species such as the Bay Checker Spotted Butterfly? If you love native wild nature, love to see native birds and butterflies flying around, if you want to become part of a movement to bring back the essential native eco systems of the Santa Clara Valley and California, then come to the July 27, EGG meeting. At this meeting, you will learn about how the native eco systems within the Santa Clara Valley can be restored one garden at a time. You will also learn about the benefits of planting California native gardens to both native wildlife and to you.

About The Presenter
Debra Kiefel grew up in the City of Santa Clara, which is close to the middle of the Santa Clara Valley. From a young age Debra loved wild nature, however, the closest thing that Santa Clara had to wild nature were the creeks that flowed through the city. As a kid, if one wanted to be in wild nature, you had to ride your bike to the perimeters of the valley, where the wild nature parks were located. Since those “yesteryears” Debra has seen firsthand the increased use of all the “wild nature” parks in the surrounding foothills of the Santa Clara Valley and the continuous overbuilding in this valley which has destroyed much of what was left of the wildlife we had 30 years ago. Her love of native wildlife and concern for the health of our planet Earth, has led her to working with others of “like mind” to bring California native plant communities back to the Santa Clara Valley, one garden at a time.
