Attracting Pollinators to Your Garden

Flowers rich in pollen and nectar and their resulting seed-heads are important sources of food that must be present year round to sustain a healthy population of pollinators.  Come learn about what specific perennials, grasses, shrubs, and even trees our flying friends adore to keep your garden buzzing with activity throughout the seasons.  Plus we will have several forms of Milkweed available to insure those Monarch butterflies will be visiting your yard.

Tom Landis is a retired forester with a deep interest in bringing back monarchs to the Rogue Valley.  Tom will teach us how to create monarch waystations and pollinator habitats.  This can be a great way to get your kids interested in insects, plants, and ecology.

Landscapers- this class qualifies for 2 hours of CEH credit
