Join Naturalist and Landscaper John Root and learn a variety of ways to "Welcome Pollinators" into your garden. John will describe the essential roles played by pollinators in our ecosystem and offer guidance on providing them with habitat throughout their life cycles. Native plants that nourish pollinators are illustrated, and organic methods for establishing pollinator gardens, wildflower meadows, and other pollinator habitat are also presented. Comments and questions are welcome throughout the program.
