Wild Ones Lecture: Prairie and Savanna Plants for Pollinator Gardens
November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The importance of pollinators to human well-being is of increasing concern, as we see population decreases in these critical components of our ecosystems and food production systems. Approximately one third of all the food we consume depends upon the work of pollinators to produce fruits, nuts, and seeds. Without pollinators, the food web would grind to a disastrous halt.
However, gardeners can plant a multitude of native flowers that attract and sustain the amazing diversity of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, beneficial wasps, and even pollinating flies. Neil will highlight the best prairie plants for attracting these marvelous creatures to your garden to help maintain the balance and productivity of our natural world.
