Gardening for Pollinators: Sustaining Wildlife with Native Plants
Join us in welcoming native plant specialist Emily DeBolt for a two-part lecture series on planting natives for pollinators. Take this opportunity to learn what it means to plant natives and their benefits to pollinators, wildlife, and biodiversity.
- On March 14th, 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.
- On April 11th, Emily will return for 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!
Both events are free. Please bring your friends!
