Speaker Series
Anchor Out by Barbara Sapienza
Thursday, May 25
7:00 in the Council Chambers

In Barbara Sapienza's new novel Anchor Out, sixty-year-old Frances Pia lives alone on a thirty-foot sailboat anchored near Sausalito, where she communes with the fog, sea lions, cormorants, and two sailor friends, Otto and Russell. Frances performs random acts of public defacement — painting drainpipes, public restrooms, and murals on the sides of houses, which she believes are beautification projects. Barbara’s reading will be accompanied by a panel discussion of Richardson Bay mariners, who will talk about what it’s like to live on the water. Barbara Sapienza is a retired clinical psychologist who practiced in San Francisco. She is a long-time Sausalito resident.

Master Gardener Series
Gardening with California Natives
Thursday, June 29
7:00 in the Council Chambers

There are thousands of native California plants, and Marin County's Mediterranean climate is the perfect place for many of them. Learn why and how using native plants in your landscape is a way to help make up for habitat lost to development. Because native plants have co-evolved with native birds, butterflies, bees, other beneficial insects and mammals, planting them in your gardens helps maintain these populations. By using native plants, you can build a beautiful landscape that uses less water and fewer chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Program presenter Bob Mauceli lives on a north Novato hillside that is landscaped using native trees, shrubs, ground covers and perennials. This program is part a new series of talks by Master Gardeners presented by Sausalito Beautiful, in conjunction with the University of California Cooperative Extension Marin Master Gardeners.

Master Gardener Series
Creating a Haven for Wildlife
Thursday, July 27
7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Thousands of acres of habitat are lost to development and other human activity in the US every year. We can offset some of this loss by designing our gardens to attract and sustain native wildlife. By choosing the right plants and adding the right features, we can invite an array of birds, hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, beneficial insects, and other animals to our gardens. Find out how to provide the essential ingredients for a habitat haven: food, water, cover and nesting space. Presenter Betsy McGee has been a Marin Master Gardener since 2008. A few years ago, she re-landscaped her own garden from a "lawn-centric" design to one that is water-wise and provides habitat for wildlife. This program is part a new series of talks by Master Gardeners presented by Sausalito Beautiful, in conjunction with the University of California Cooperative Extension Marin Master Gardeners.
