The DeKalb Master Gardener Association is just that — an  association of about 40 Master Gardeners and friends in DeKalb County, Georgia.  The organization was formed to foster more extensive educational, community service, and social events for interested Master Gardeners. 

DMGA is classified as a "Master Gardener volunteer organization outside the UGA university structure" and receives no support or public funds through the Cooperative Extension Service.  For information about the DeKalb County Cooperative Extension Service, please visit the following website:

Georgann Schmalz on Ornithophily

Join DeKalb Master Gardener Association for its October meeting as Georgann Schmalz shares her new program on Ornithophily. That's pollinating by birds. She'll cover the usual pollinators (insects, mammals) a little but focus on how and why flowers adapt to attract birds. She'll end with some information on hummingbirds (especially in North America) and on the best pollinator plants.

Georgann was the President of the Atlanta Audubon Society three times. She also taught at Fernbank Science Center K through 12. Her website is quite informative as well. Maybe you’d like to take a birding trip with her -- the US, Central or South America, or Africa??? See her website for details:

DMGA meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Northlake / Barbara Loar Branch of the DeKalb County Public Library located at 3772 LaVista Road, Tucker, GA 30084 (inside I-285, at the corner of Harobi Dr. and LaVista Rd., turn onto Harobi at the BB&T Bank).
