VIRTUAL Attracting Pollinators

Presented by East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District

March 13 – Attracting Pollinators

9:00 to 11:30 a.m. PST

This class will be held online. After submitting the form accessed through the link below, there will be additional steps to fully complete your registration. Please look for a confirmation email from “EMSWCD Staff” and follow the instructions provided. Thank you!

 

Gardens are pollinated by a variety of insects that help flowers set seed and help fruit and vegetable plants produce an edible harvest. Mostly familiar with European honey bees, few of us are aware of the many flies, beetles, moths and butterflies at our doorsteps that also provide critical pollination services. In this workshop you will learn about the different kinds of pollinators that might be living in your garden, discover a plant palette to help attract and support pollinators, and go beyond the bloom to consider ways to provide shelter, water, nesting, and overwintering sites. Please note that this class will focus on the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

Although Leach Botanical Garden typically hosts these workshops in our Manor House Fireplace Room, during the pandemic, we are delighted to continue hosting them on our website and to join EMSWCD events online.

Please contact Rhesa at (503) 222-7645 or rhesa@emswcd.org for information on accessibility or accommodation.
