Attracting Pollinators to the Urban Garden

Monday, December 13 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

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 with East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, 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 Wilamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

Registration is required.
