BUGS - Good, Bad, Ugly Class

Keep Coppell Beautiful Environmental Education is offering BUGS – Good, Bad, Ugly, from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm on Saturday, February 1, at the new Biodiversity Education Center, 367 S. Freeport Pkwy. 

Insects perform a valued service in the form of organic pollination and pest control for one’s garden. Many beneficial insects can be an ally to your yard, often outnumber insect pests and eliminate the need for pesticides.  Learn how beneficial insects can help your garden, how to identify beneficial insects, and how to attract and provide habitats for beneficial insects. 

The class will be taught by Amanda Vanhoozier, Community Programs Manager for the City of Coppell.  Ms. Vanhoozier oversees the award winning Keep Coppell Beautiful, Coppell Community Garden and the Coppell Farmers Market by involving the community in these all-volunteer sustainability programs.  Ms. Vanhoozier also works with EcoCoppell and the Coppell Service Center’s Environmental Management System.  Ms. Vanhoozier serves with the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association Board of Directors, Grow North Texas Board of Directors, and volunteers with SHOVEL-Food Policy Advisory Committee.  Ms. Vanhoozier has presented for Keep Texas Beautiful, Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners, Dallas Co. Community College Sustainability Summit, Deep Ellum Urban Garden, and Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association.  

Join Keep Coppell Beautiful to learn the how bugs can actually help your garden.

There is no charge for this class and registration is not required.
