Pollinator Gardening
Presented by Ann Dailey, Master Gardner
Monday, April 16
Stern Center, room 102 | noon-1 p.m.

One out of every three bites of food we eat, and approximately 80% of all flowering plants are pollinated by insects and animals we call pollinators: butterflies and moths, bees, birds, beetles and more. Many of them, especially bees and butterflies, are declining rapidly due to habitat loss, disease, and pesticide use. You can help these beneficial insects and animals by filling your yard with pollinator-friendly plants, shrubs, and trees that provide the food and shelter needed for survival. Learn about what makes a plant pollinator-friendly, and how to grow it in your garden. A special emphasis on our own Kaufman pollinator garden, planted last spring, will tempt you with new ideas for your own gardening designs. Registration: Employees registration is available in Totara via the Gateway by enrolling in the Nutrition Info Sessions course, then signing up for this session. Students may register by sending an email.
