Take a look behind the scenes with Don Corrigan. This new series entitled “Behind The Editor’s Curtain” gives readers more information and insight on how Corrigan picks some of his article topics.

In the South County Times article “Bring Conservation Home” a retired Lindbergh High School teacher, Weldon Cox, shows off his home garden. Mr. Cox has converted part of his garden into pollinator habitat areas.

Pollinators, like honeybees and Monarch butterflies, have been declining in numbers and are in serious trouble. Gardens, like the one Mr. Cox has created, help provide habitat and a safe environment for pollinators of all sorts.
