If You Plant Them They Will Come

April 25, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Learn how the plants you plant will attract the pollinators you need to support a healthy and vibrant backyard ecosystem. Master Gardener, Jane Shull, takes us on her journey into the world of butterflies and other pollinators made possible by the plants she cultivated to support all the stages of each pollinator’s life-cycle. It’s love at first site and a sight to behold. Join us for an engaging presentation.
