Trees for Bees
While prairies, grasslands, and meadows are critical habitats for pollinators, there are many other opportunities to support our insect allies and increase plant diversity in our gardens. In the Northeast, where creating wildflower meadows can be challenging, the value of woody plants in pollinator conservation is often overlooked. Kelly Gill of the Xerces Society presents a suite of high-value trees and shrubs that provide habitat for native bees, butterflies, and other flower visitors. A tour of Mt. Cuba Center’s gardens to see these plant-insect interactions first hand completes the day.
Rain date for this class is Friday, May 18.
