Tiny Critters Doing a Big Job: The Importance of Insect Pollinators in our Ecosystem

Join our chapter president, Mary Lee Epps as she presents “Tiny Critters Doing a Big Job:  the Importance of Insect Pollinators in our Ecosystem.”  She’ll talk about different ways pollination can occur, but with a particular focus on insect pollination.  Bees, moths, butterflies, wasps, flies and beetles all can play a role in moving pollen from plant to plant, but bees are by far the best equipped for the job and we’ll find out why.  She’ll also briefly discuss the various threats to pollinators and finally she’ll give some pointers on designing a pollinator-friendly garden.  Visitors are welcome to join us.
