The Town of Vail is committed to educating local residents and businesses about the challenges of protecting Gore Creek’s delicate eco-system. Part of this involves sharing resources and information about the issues, risks, and steps that members of our community can take to help Restore the Gore. The downloadable educational materials below offer a great starting point for anyone ready to learn more and learn what they can do to contribute.
Attracting Beneficial Insects
When gardeners requested more information on
beneficial insects, we asked expert Richard Merrill
to write this guide. Richard is Professor Emeritus
and former Director of the Horticulture Department
at Cabrillo Community College in Santa Cruz,
California. He has done extensive research on
beneficials and their relationship to garden ecology.
