Pollinators in Your Yard
January 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$20
Join us in the Gresham Japanese Garden’s greenhouse for a discussion on native host plants for butterflies and how to create a pollinator yard.
The successful transfer of pollen in and between flowers of the same plant species leads to fertilization, successful seed development, and fruit production. Learn where and how to plant milkweed and other plants to attract monarch butterflies.
Last, what plants do you need to plant to attract butterflies!
Butterflies aren’t the only pollinators. Learn about keeping mason bees too.
AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE CLASS: Pollinator plant seed kits for Monarch butterfly host plant and/or native nectar plant seeds.
Class will be held in the outside greenhouse behind the Resource Center (building closest to Springwater Trail).
Masks will be mandatory. Limited to 9 participants.
