IMPORTANT: Due to ongoing power outages, the Garden is closed and the in person portion of this program is CANCELLED. In person registrants will receive a link to the virtual portions of today’s program and we will refund the difference between the in person and online registration. See the revised agenda, below.
Pollinators play a crucial role in ecological survival. Neither humans nor earth’s terrestrial ecosystems could survive without them. Nearly 80% of the 1,400 crop plants grown around the world – those that produce all of our food and industrial products –require pollination, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Join us for a day of learning about our native pollinators and how to support them with strategies for your home garden. In the morning, learn about three indicator species–species that indicate the health of an environment. After lunch (included with in person registration) engage in breakout sessions on resources available locally, then finish with a bringing-it-all back home final keynote.
This is a hybrid program.
Presentations and participation are in person or online via Zoom.
