Fall Gardening for Pollinators: Creating a Resilient Garden for All Seasons
September 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDTFree
Join Emily May, Pollinator Conservation Specialist with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, to talk about supporting pollinators and other wildlife in our yards and gardens through the changing seasons. Where do beneficial insects spend the winter? What does gardening for wildlife look like in the fall and winter? We’ll talk about building resilience into our yards and gardens and rethinking our fall/winter garden aesthetic to better understand and support the lives around us.
