Flowers are Bee-Loved: Planting for Pollinators & Our Own Well-Being – Greensboro, NC
January 16th, 2019
9:30 AM – 10:20 AM
(Full Conference January 14th – 19th)
Sheraton Four Seasons Hotel
Join Nancy Lee Adamson of the Xerces Society and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service for this session at the Green and Growin’ Conference and Expo to learn about plant and pollinator connections. Understanding the specialized and general connections between plants and pollinators, and the added benefits of pollinator habitat for conservation biocontrol, watershed health, clean air and clean water, can help nurseries and landscapers promote diverse native plants. Nancy will highlight native wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees that support bees, butterflies, and other wildlife, plus share ways to reduce fears of pollen allergies or stinging insects. Nancy will share resources for better supporting some of the 500 native bees, other pollinators, and other insects that help keep garden pest populations in balance—by providing pollen, nectar, and shelter through the year.
