Attracting Native Pollinators

Tuesday, April 19 @ 6:30 pm

Pollinators are vital to maintaining healthy ecosystems. They are essential for plant reproduction and produce genetic diversity in the plants they pollinate. Bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, beetles, wasps and even flies pollinate flowers. Massachusetts has a rich diversity of 380 species of bees and 120 species of butterflies.

Join us on April 19 to learn new ways to attract native pollinators to your garden.

This program will be led by Dave Small of the Athol Bird and Nature Club. For over twenty-eight years, Dave has been the charismatic leader of the Club. His skills as a naturalist, trip leader, and presenter are in demand throughout New England. Through Dave’s efforts, the Center is recognized as the place to hold meetings that relate to natural history and the environment.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services - Dig-In Grant.
