Pollinators for Your Yard
May 21, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFREE
Join us for a free class in the Gresham Japanese Garden’s greenhouse for a discussion on native host plants for butterflies and how to create a pollinator yard.
The successful transfer of pollen in and between flowers of the same plant species leads to fertilization, successful seed development, and fruit production. Learn where and how to plant milkweed and other plants to attract monarch butterflies.
Last, what plants do you need to plant to attract butterflies!
Butterflies aren’t the only pollinators. Learn about keeping mason bees too.
Class will be held in the outside greenhouse behind the Resource Center (building closest to Springwater Trail).
Masks will be mandatory. Limited to 9 participants.
