June 8 at 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Join us for the first in a three part Water Wednesday series! Heather Holm will present “What You Can Do For Pollinators: Creating a Pollinator Friendly Garden Habitat.” You will learn about the types of native pollinators that visit our gardens and how we can foster all parts of their life cycles, including providing food, water and nesting habitat. The top native plant species for pollinators will also be discussed.
