Bee-ing There: How to Support Wild Bees

Wednesday, August 16, 6:30-8 PM

How to Support Wild Bees Presentation Details

There are a myriad of ways you can support wild bees whether or not you have access to a yard for regenerating habitat. In this illustrated presentation and discussion, author and native plant gardening expert Lorraine Johnson will explore many possibilities that go beyond backyard and front yard habitat gardens to spaces such as balconies, community areas, boulevards, streetscapes and more. Lorraine will also connect pollinator-support efforts to wider advocacy and our roles in creating the broad structural changes necessary for pollinators to thrive.
