Restoring Nature in Your Garden with Dennis Mudd – Monthly General Meeting
January 15, 2020 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
For Dennis Mudd it all began with mountain biking through the natural areas of San Diego. The more time he spent in nature, the more he wanted to recreate it in his own garden. Along the way, Dennis’s nature restoration efforts started to work only after switching to all endemics. “I was astounded by the amount of bird life that my garden attracted; I’ve counted over 50 species in the last few years. The number of butterflies was also amazing. If you like birds and butterflies, you should plant a native garden.”
Dennis Mudd is a self-taught, native plant enthusiast who founded Calscape in 2010 with the goal of enabling small-scale, nature restoration efforts in California. The site is primarily focused on showing homeowners which plants are likely native to any location in the state and helping these gardeners figure out which plants they want, where to buy the plants, and how to grow them.
Mudd donated Calscape to the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) in 2014 and leads development of the site in partnership with CNPS and the Jepson eFlora group at UC Berkeley. The site is now approaching one million unique users per year. (https://calscape.org)
