Insects in your garden: the good, the bad, and the "bugly"

saturday, july 15th through thursday, august 10th

The Oregon State University Klamath Basin Research and Extension Center is back at the Klamath County Libraries this summer with another gardening workshop series – this time tackling insects in your garden.

Nicole Sanchez, an Oregon State University assistant professor in horticulture, will lead both budding and experienced gardeners through identifying insects – the good, the bad, and the “bugly” – and their effect on plants.

Sanchez has worked in the horticulture industry for nearly 30 years. She runs the Klamath County Master Gardener Program at the OSU Klamath Basin Research and Extension Center, and has worked extensively with both home gardeners and commercial fruit and vegetable growers.

No pre-registration or prerequisites are required to attend any of the workshops. Each lecture will repeat three times at three different locations on different days of the week, so feel free to choose the time slot that best fits your schedule! Our topics and workshop dates are:
