Join us as Whitney Troy from Kent Land Trust and Nancy Schaefer from Kent Garden Club host a presentation about Pollinator Pathways! Destruction of pollinator habitats is increasing the decline of pollinators. Pollinators are keystone species as many different organisms, including humans, rely on them to survive! Pollinators are essential to our food system. We rely on pollinators for crops such as almonds, berries, chocolate, and more! Pollinator Pathways is an initiative to promote pollinator-friendly habitats and create connectivity between these habitats for pollinators. Pollinator Pathways’ mission statement is: “Establishing pollinator-friendly habitats and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinating insects and wildlife.” This presentation will inform the public about who pollinators are and what is threatening them, discussing the Pollinator Pathways initiative and how individuals can get involved. By simply planting native plants, pulling invasives, incorporating pollinator-friendly mow practices, and using little to no pesticides and lawn chemicals, we can all help pollinators. Nancy Schaefer from Kent Garden Club will offer advice on creating a pollinator garden and pollinator-friendly gardening tips.
