The Hudson Garden Club announced the Oct. 20 general meeting will feature Stanley Stine and his program "Native Trees & Shrubs, Neglected Additions To Our Landscapes."
The meeting will be at Laurel Lake, 200 Laurel Lake Drive, with social time at 6:45 p.m. and the meeting starting at 7 p.m.
The speaker will discuss the beneficial native trees and shrubs for our insects and other wild species, now replaced by non-natives and often invasive ones on properties.
Stanley Stine has been a field botanist since the early 1980s, working on projects for the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves (ODNR), Five Rivers Metro Parks, plus the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
As a part-time employee of the museum's Natural Areas Division, he has worked on numerous vegetation studies in northeastern Ohio, meeting with property owners, offering advice regarding their properties.
Through his full-time job as the city of Twinsburg's naturalist, his work has evolved into environmental education, both for the city of Twinsburg and for the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Working with adults and children are the priorities in his current career.
An accomplished writer and photographer, he continues using these tools to educate the public in northeast Ohio, regarding current environmental concerns.
Anyone interested in attending the program and learning about native trees and shrubs are welcome to attend as the meeting is open to the public. Call Bronwyn Pierson at 330-612-4879 with any questions about the evening.
