June Seminar: “Native Pollinators: Your Yard Can Make a Difference”

Saturday, June 10, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.  Presented by Chris Lueking, U of I Extension

    Celebrate National Pollinator Week and find out how you can help conserve pollinator populations by attending a free seminar “Native Pollinators” presented by Chris Lueking, University of Illinois Extension Horticulture and Natural Resources Educator, on Saturday, June 10, at 10:00 a.m. here at Plantscape.  She will discuss creating a “pollinator pocket” in your yard with native and annual plants for blooms throughout the season including plants that attract our native pollinators. She will also discuss some techniques to attract beneficial insects to help eliminate garden pests, host plants and nectar plants, which pollinators like certain shapes of flowers, the number of plants to grow depending on the pollinator you wish to attract and more. Handouts with lists of plants will be available. Besides being an extension educator, Chris has her own cut flower business, and experience with high tunnel growing and community gardens.
