  • Native Pollinators Workshop

    Wednesday, March 15th at 12:30pm

    At The Bakerville Community Garden-(102 4th Street in Bisbee)

    Bisbee Community Gardens and Freeport-McMoran welcome you to learn about the species of our region that serve the vital purpose of pollination and the native pollinating plants which attract them.

    We will be exploring the importance of pollinators to the ecosystem and food production, as well as how to counteract threats that are being faced by pollinators.

    There will be a display table to examine native bee houses and live exhibits with caterpillars on potted host plants, ladybirds and/or preying mantis (beneficial insects for pest control & pollination) that we will release at the end of the workshop.

    We will also do some planting of native pollinating plants to enhance the Community Garden’s native pollinator section. Participants can take home all the knowledge they gained, as well as native pollinator info pamphlets and a small give away!
