Jefferson Chapter VNPS Meeting: Tiny Critters Doing a Big Job: the Importance of Insect Pollinators in our Ecosystem.
Our chapter president Mary Lee Epps will look at different ways pollination can occur, with a particular focus on insect pollination. Bees, moths, butterflies, wasps, flies and beetles all can play a role in moving pollen from plant to plant, but bees are by far the best equipped for the job and we’ll find out why. Mary Lee will also briefly discuss the various threats to pollinators and finally will give some pointers on designing a pollinator-friendly garden.
All are, as always, welcome.
