Learn to identify a sampling of local Bay Area plants, weeds and bugs. Find out which are good and bad bugs, how some bugs are beneficial to your garden, and which are culprits and how they interact.

Also learn whether a weed is good, bad, noxious and/or invasive, and learn to identify plants by genus/species using a dichotomous key.
