Presentation to reveal importance of insects

An award-winning horticulturist will host a presentation on backyard entomology at 3 p.m. May 6 at the library, 26 North Road.

Pam Gilpin is a board member of the Newport Tree Society and the 2013 recipient of the horticultural award at the Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum. During her visual presentation, she will discuss the essential role that insects have on a garden’s ecosystem as pollinators, predators and recyclers of decomposing animals and plants.
