This talk will be held virtually on Zoom. Registration is required
Join us as we explore New York’s native flowers and their preferred pollinators.
This program will unveil the region’s diversity of native bees and their unique relationships with native plants, from the earliest spring ephemerals to the last fall blossoms. Over evolutionary time, flowers have devised various strategies to attract attention and ensure pollination.
One of the most effective ways to help pollinators is to plant a wide selection of insecticide free plants that bloom from early spring to late fall. Audiences will leave informed, delighted, and prepared to take action on their behalf of our native pollinators.
