Trees and Shrubs for Pollinators

October 9 | 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Our home landscapes are place where we relax, entertain, play and dine - but what if we weren’t the only ones enjoying our backyards? The trees and shrubs in our landscape and in our communities serve a critical ecological service to a wide variety of pollinator species. Pollinators, such as butterflies, moths, and bees, play a critical role in our food production systems. Join us as we explore the ways we can plant and manage our landscape to support these vital creatures without sacrificing our own enjoyment or beauty preferences. PresenterDebbie Fluegel, Trees Forever.
