2021 Annual Plant Sale Was a Big Success

Barbara Eisenstein

The 2021 annual native plant sale was a big success. The sale opened on a sunny and warm – but not hot – Saturday in November. Interested and curious shoppers lined up outside the gate to the Monrovia Historical Museum patio. They entered to find over 1,800 plants arranged on the lovely patio. Throughout the day we had a record turn out, and sold almost all of our plants. As such, we sent approximately 1,800 excellent habitat plants out into our communities.

Native Plants of the San Gabriel Mountains T-Shirt - New Color

Margaret Gallagher

Our chapter t-shirt is now available in a new color, classic black! We got together with several of our chapter volunteers to photograph the new color with a backdrop of some of our beloved native plants. The Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area, Debs Park, and Gabi and Cliff McClean’s native garden provided lush early-spring backdrops for the photos. Our shirts are printed by a locally-owned business in Pasadena on organic cotton tees.

Birds and Plants

William Hallstrom

Birds can tell us things about the types of habitats we encounter and their relation to the plants that occur there. In attempting to better understand the nature of my local habitat areas, I have learned a little about birding and bird photography. This article discusses some of my observations looking at birds in and around the Pasadena area; especially, I have started to notice that some species tend to be more adaptable to different types of habitat. I talk about some of the questions that have occured to me in thinking about habitats, especially around urban areas, and in our gardens.
