Chapter Meeting: Nature Restoration Landscaping & Calscape

  • Casa Del Prado, Rm 101 1600 Village Place San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)

with Dennis Mudd, founder of calscape.org

“Nature Restoration Landscaping & Calscape” is focused on helping people restore nature in their gardens, by building natural ecosystems composed of plants, insects, birds and other animal life indigenous to their location.  We’ll discuss some of the best practices for nature restoration landscaping, and demonstrate the Calscape web site, a powerful tool for helping people figure out which plants naturally belong in their garden, where to buy them and how to keep them healthy.

Dennis Mudd is a self-taught native plant enthusiast, who founded Calscape to enable small scale nature restoration efforts in California. Mudd now leads development of the site in partnership with CNPS and Jepson eFlora. His native garden won San Diego Home and Garden’s “Garden of the Year" award in 2012.
