Creating a Living Landscape

This workshop presented information on how to create a living landscape and garden ecologically. As habitat for insects and animals becomes scarce, living landscapes become important places of refuge for wildlife, while at the same time adding biological diversity to cities.

Urban Run-Off Research

Eleven pest control chemicals, including products no longer commercially available, were found virtually year-round in storm drain water samples from eight selected California neighborhoods. The main ingredients of lawn and garden fertilizers were also found in the water samples at all sites.
