Making Space for Pollinators
naturalist, Jerry Schneider
Thursday, August 5 from 4 –5 p.m.
Community Room–Socially distanced, masks required.
Join us for a new slide presentation of some of our local pollinators, by Jerry Schneider, creator of the award-winning Butterfly Game. The program features photos of butterflies, bees, and bats, important critters that help pollinate our orchards, back yard gardens, and our rain forests. Audiences will learn how to build and maintain habitats that help our pollinator populations, what time of year to mow fields that is most beneficial to pollinators, and what flowers to grow in our gardens to attract butterflies and bees.
After the slide show, children will create pollinator tee shirts, using a combination of fabric dye sprays, plants, and butterfly, bat and dragonfly cut outs. Children may bring their own clean white tee shirt or purchase a heavy cotton (Gildan) tee shirt for $4.00.
