with David Newsom, Founder, Wild Yards Project
David will speak about Wild Yards Project, a collaboration of story-tellers and native plant professionals working together to inspire people not just in California but across the country to transform their yards into native-plant habitat.
David Newsom is a lifetime naturalist, an amateur native-plant gardener, and a 27 year veteran of film and television, the last 10 years of which has all been adventure-documentary. With the arrival of his two kids, however, he suddenly realized that they may never cultivate an intimacy with nature unless he brought nature to their yard. So, he did. Hence the WYP was born.
