Our pollinators are on the decline, and we all need to be concerned. One out of every three bites of food we eat, and over 80% of all plants, require the work of a pollinator. A lack of pollinators has reduced songbird populations, and negatively impacts biodiversity everywhere. Fortunately, there is something you can do to help!
We are now offering a hands-on workshop for gardeners, homeowners, and landowners! Participants will learn the following:
You’ll receive a Pollinator Packet filled with plant and resource lists, educational materials, and pollinator seeds to get you started!
Over the past 25 years, we have steadily converted a portion of Petals in the Pines’ 7.5 acres of woodland to pollinator habitat. Once completely surrounded by trees, now we are in the midst of open spaces filled with flowers and features that attract bees, butterflies, moths, and many bird species.
The Pollinator Workshop will be held in our Arbor Day Foundation-certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom. Come prepared for some uneven terrain and prolonged standing. Please dress for the weather, wear good walking shoes, and bring a water bottle. If applying bug spray here, please do so in our parking area, away from the pollinators. Please leave pets at home.
Workshop Fee: $15 per person, $10 for each additional family member including kids age 12 and up. One Pollinator Packet per family.
