Spring happenings are topic for Master Gardeners

“Spring Has Sprung” is the topic for the 7 p.m. Thursday, March 28, meeting of the Ozaukee Master Gardeners at the Ozaukee County Administration Center.

Kate Redmond, a local teacher and interpretive naturalist, will discuss what triggers plant growth and animal activity, why spring is a critical time of year for plant and animal populations, how plants and animals emerge from a Wisconsin winter and why and how birds migrate from the vernal equinox to the summer solstice

Redmond, who’s also known as the Bug Lady, served for 10 years as the founding board member for Friends of the Cedarburg Bog, wrote the online field guide for the Mequon Nature Preserve and currently serves on the board of the Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Conservatory.  

She is also Riveredge Nature Center’s paparazza and has written more than 500 essays about local insects and other invertebrates.

The administration center is at 121 W. Main Street, Port Washington.
