Planting for Pollinators

Learn how you can encourage pollinators, whether you have a garden or not!Award winner Jen Baker will explain how on Saturday July 22. Jen began the Pollinators for Paradise Project some years ago. She has a vast knowledge about the importance of pollinators and what they need, and over 20 years experience in acquiring lands for habitat restoration and protection.

Pollinator populations are rapidly declining due to habitat loss, chemical use and climate change. We depend on pollinators for much of the food which we eat. Fortunately, we can play a significant role in helping to prevent their further decline.

The programme Planting for Pollinators begins at 11 am. The presentation will take about an hour on Saturday July 22. The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is located at the canal end of Centennial Park in Dundas. It is suggested that you bring a chair and wear a sun hat. Lots of free parking available and on the bus route.
