Local Insects and their Relationships with Native Plants Talk

Why are native plants so important? How are insects and other wildlife dependent on them? Come join us at this month's meeting to find out about these relationships.

Join us at the Trail Conference headquarters for the monthly meeting of the Bergen-Passaic chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey. We share information among native plant enthusiasts and have informative talks on native plants. Meetings are free and open to the public.

This month's talk will be on:

Local Insects:
Their Natural History & Plant Interactions

Our speaker is Ken Chaya.
Ken Chaya is an urban naturalist based in New York City. He is the designer and co-creator of "Central Park Entire," the celebrated tree map and portable app of the 20,000 individual trees found in Central Park. He is an instructor at the New York Botanical Garden and leads nature walks through all five boroughs of NYC. He is currently working on a book about nature in New York City and serves as the Vice President of the Linnaean Society of New York.

Trail Conference headquarters is located on Route 202, Ramapo Valley Road, in Mahwah, just north of Ramapo Valley County Reservation and opposite the turnoff for Darlington Road. The parking lot is small, but overflow parking is available next door at the Ramapo County Reservation with a short walk through the woods. This parking and trail are NOT lighted, so attendees should bring a flashlight, carpool, or arrive early to park near the building. The path from the reserve parking lot to the trail center begins just to the left of the "do not enter" sign.
