There are over 4,000 native pollinator species in North America that depend upon our gardens and landscapes for food and resources, just as we depend on them. This workshop will provide an overview of our native pollinators and offer techniques that we can use to lure them to work for us in our gardens, while also providing season-appropriate habitats for them in our outdoor spaces.
