Lecture Series: Creating Buzzworthy Gardens: Successful Pollinator Habitats

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 @ 10:00am
Wing Haven
This is a virtual event taking place online. Check below for details on how to access and/or register.
Speaker: Anne Spafford - Professor of Landscape Design, Department of Horticulture Science, NC State University

Residential gardens can play a huge role in providing much needed habitat, food and water supplies, and nesting places for pollinators. No garden is too small to make a difference. With over 40 million acres of lawn in the United States alone, there is ample opportunity to make room for pollinator habitat. While there is much concern for the plight of pollinators, many homeowners are unaware or unsure how they can help, and are perhaps concerned about the landscape aesthetics of a pollinator habitat. 

Landscape design guidelines and best practices for implementation and management will be shared that enable gardeners and pollinator-enthusiasts to create high performing (e.g. not only supporting pollinators, but mitigating stormwater runoff, etc.) landscapes through strategies that will help them implement gorgeous habitats with practical on-the-ground actions and with an eye towards pollinator protection.

Registration includes live presentation (either in-person or virtually) and Q&A session. A recording of the program will be available after the presentation.
