April 12 - MBHS presents:

      "Native Plants: Who needs 'em?" Madena Asbell, Native Nursery Manager at Mojave Desert Land Trust.
  Native plants are the foundation of our ecosystems. Most animals rely directly or indirectly on plants for their survival, whether it's for food, shelter, or other resources.
 In this beautifully illustrated presentation, you will learn about the many desert dwellers that are supported by plants, which plants they use and what they use them for. Who needs native plants? We all do!
Place article copy here. Be sure to make the articles short and concise as people tend not to read much more than a couple of paragraphs.
