“A Natural Attraction: Bringing in the Most Beautiful Butterflies and Hummingbirds to Your Backyard Oasis” is the topic of a gardening program to be presented in the library’s Quaker Room on March 30, 2016 beginning at 6:30 p.m. by Cynthia Druckenbrod, Vice President of Horticulture at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Do you love seeing butterflies and hummingbirds flitting about your yard? This talk will highlight the best new and tried and true plants that will not only attract these flying jewels but will also keep them coming back all summer and fall!

Cynthia Druckenbrod began her career at the Cleveland Botanical Garden in 2000 as the Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse Manager and was responsible for operations of the Glasshouse and maintenance of the plant and animal collections. In 2007, she was promoted to Vice President of Horticulture and oversees 10 acres of outdoor gardens in addition to the Glasshouse collections. Before joining Cleveland Botanical Garden, Druckenbrod served as the director of the Day Butterfly Center at Callaway Gardens in Atlanta, Georgia. Prior to working at Callaway Gardens, Druckenbrod worked at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo as an entomologist and managed the daily operations of the tropical Butterfly Garden. Druckenbrod has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Case Western Reserve.
