Planning for Pollinators this Fall | Everyday Environment


For the love of pollinators

Caring for pollinators doesn't stop in the fall. After taking steps this spring and summer to promote pollinators in your yard and garden, learn what actions you can take this fall to continue supporting pollinating insects. Join Extension educator Erin Garrett to learn about pollinator friendly garden cleanup, fall planting of bareroot plants, and winter planting of native seeds. We’ll also cover what fall-blooming plants to add to your garden to provide food and habitat for pollinators after the spring and summer seasons. Register online.
