CREATING A BUZZ IN YOUR BACKYARD- Virtual Program

Date: Monday, July 13th, 2020 Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


What can you plant in your backyard to create pollinator habitat? Debbie Fluegel of Trees Forever helps answer this question for homeowners. Not everyone has a few acres to dedicate to pollinator habitat, but “islands” of habitat throughout our communities are vital for a sustainable future.  Find out how you can help.
