Join Kaitlin Haase from the Xerces Society at the Agri-Nature Center for a presentation on gardening for pollinators in Albuquerque. Kaitlin will discuss which native plants support New Mexico's diverse pollinator species and provide guidance on how to create a pollinator-friendly landscape. After the presentation, the group will head outside for a short pollinator walk to observe and identify pollinators and habitat elements on the farm.
