Pollinator Garden Lecture: How YOU Can Help Pollinators in This Special Place and Why it is Important
The Cape May Peninsula is world famous for bird, butterfly, and dragonfly migration, all of which is happening RIGHT NOW! Visitors come to the Cape from all over the US and abroad to witness this. If you live here, you can make a huge difference as to whether these migrants (Monarchs and songbirds) can refuel (find food) while here by providing a robust pollinator garden. With the new Avalon Pollinator Garden in Armacost Park as the backdrop, Pat Sutton (educator, author, and long-time wildlife gardener) will cover the basics of how you can attract and benefit pollinators. Plant it, a native plant pollinator garden (free of insecticides and heavy-handed maintenance), and they will come. This event is co-sponsored by the Avalon Environmental Commission and the Avalon Free Public Library. Rain date August 25.
