Online using Zoom
This series of two programs will be held online using Zoom. To register for one or both sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Login information will be emailed to you on the day of the program.
In the second part of this two-part series, we’ll briefly review why planting native trees, shrubs, flowers, and grasses benefits pollinators and then focus mostly on how to get started in creating a pollinator-friendly garden on one’s property. We’ll discuss how to select the right plants for your conditions, even if you don’t have sun. We’ll address establishing and maintaining a pollinator-friendly garden, organic pest-control methods, and the fact that most native bees don’t sting. As Roaring Brook Nature Center’s Margery Winters says, “If you plant it, they will come.”
The co-presenters are Karen Berger and Theresa Sullivan Barger, co-founders of Canton’s Pollinator Pathway and members of the Canton Land Conservation Trust board of directors.
