Lecture series: Gardening for Pollinators – Sustaining wildlife with native plants
April 11, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
**Our event scheduled for March 14th is POSTPONED due to inclement weather. **
Content during this talk will be discussed during a lengthened April 11th event.
Welcome native plant specialist Emily DeBolt of Fiddlehead Creek for a discussion on planting natives for pollinators. Take this opportunity to learn a bit more about planting natives and their benefits to pollinators, wildlife, and biodiversity.
On April 11th, Emily will discuss how we can increase opportunities for pollinators and wildlife through the use of native plants. By learning more about pollinators, native plants, and their benefits, we can then make more informed decisions about how we manage our landscapes. She will then lead a more in-depth conversation about native plants and how they both influence and impact our pollinators. She will offer tips on garden design and planting selection. This will be a great session prepping you for a successful, colorful, and sustainable planting season ahead! We hope you can join us!
