Native Plants and their Pollinators (for Adults & Teens 13+)
Monday, April 5, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
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. Registration is required; register online on our online calendar at www.somerslibray.org or call 914-232-5717. You will receive an email prior to each meeting with a Zoom invitation.
