Pollinators include butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and even flies, beetles and wasps.
How important are pollinators to life around us?
Over 80% of plants require an animal pollinator to reproduce.
All pollinators are in trouble for many reasons.
Learn about all the different pollinators that are at work in your garden that you may have over looked. You will be amazed at the lengths that flowers go to in order to attract pollinators and will appreciate the interdependence that pollinators have with plants that we take for granted. Learn interesting facts about these pollinators and enjoy the photography by Larry Scheunemann in the program “Gardening for Pollinators.”
Handouts will be provided on gardening for butterflies and hummingbirds. Be inspired to plant for pollinators! Cost: $7 non-member, $5 RBG Members; includes printed and note taking materials (where applicable), admission to Rotary Botanical Gardens, and light refreshments.
Tickets to this event may be purchased at the door, or online, in advance.
Please note: if you would like to view the Gardens, please arrive with time prior to the beginning of the presentation as the Gardens close at 8:00 p.m. Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, who is also required to purchase a ticket.
This is an approved Continuing Education program. MGVs and Interns will earn one (1) Continuing Education Unit (CEU) per hour of participation.
