Attracting Birds, Butterflies, Bees and Other Beneficials - ONLINE

Thursday, March 4, 2021

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

As we begin to think about planning our gardens this year, consider the benefits of adding plants to attract birds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficials.  This program will help you do just that!

Join us for this power point presentation offered by naturalist and landscaper John Root, which will  describe the essential roles played by birds, pollinators, and other beneficial wildlife, and provides guidance on meeting their needs for food, cover, and water. A variety of plants that nourish these organisms throughout their lifecycles is discussed, and organic methods for establishing wildlife habitat are also presented. Handouts are downloadable, and comments and questions will be welcome at the conclusion of the program.

Click here to join via Zoom.  (Contact Janet Ryan via email for dial in information.)

A recording of this event will be scheduled for multiple broadcasts by Amherst Media and will be made accessible at their website via YouTube.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Jones Libraries.  This program is also supported in part by the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
