Gardening with Bees in Mind

  • This event has passed.

Native bees need our help! We cannot afford to lose our native bees, as they are integral to ecosystems and pollinate a significant portion of our crops. Join Leah Brooks as she discusses how we can extend a lifeline to our struggling pollinators by planting certain shrubs and wildflowers and managing our home habitats with bees in mind. A garden walk to view the plants is included.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, June 24, 2023.
