Pollinators are a critical part of the natural ecosystem yet many studies show their numbers are in decline. Fortunately there are ways to attract and support pollinators in the garden and landscape. Join us to learn about native pollinators and their habitat needs, as well as tips for selecting plants, designing gardens will pollinators in mind, and maintaining established pollinator gardens.
