Register for this free event at Eventbrite

Wondering how to transform your very own garden into a pollinator paradise? Join us for an educational presentation about the threats to our local pollinators and the specific plants to grow here in Rye to attract native birds, bees and butterflies.

AJ Johnson, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Rye Nature Center, will discuss landscaping techniques that protect and sustain pollinator health, ways to safely manage ticks and mosquitoes, and how to make your outdoor space an oasis for a diversity of beneficial pollinator species.

Sample native plants from the Rye Nature Center Greenhouse will be displayed, coffee and light refreshments will be served (bring your reusable mug please!), and attendees will each receive a packet of native wildflower seeds for planting.

Learn more about pollinators here and here. And for more information about how to maintain a pollinator-friendly yard, visit the Rye Healthy Yard Page.
