Native Plants and Pollinators
with Jason Graves
Native plants and pollinators just belong together. Making and supporting pollinators should not be optional since they are essential to maintaining the vast number of ecosystem services we all rely on every day. This class will explore connections between native plants and pollinators and what we can do make and support pollinators in our own yards. Taught by Horticulture Extension Agent Jason Graves, you will leave class with your own native pollinator plant from Dyck Arboretum.
