A Year in Blooms – Through A Pollinator's Eyes
Thursday, March 16th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Dexter Township Hall, 6880 Dexter-Pinckney Rd. Dexter, MI
Vince Ste. Marie of Windy Rock Farm and Nursery will present an "ideas" talk for those desiring to plant for pollinators, but not knowing where to begin or how to select plants that best meet pollinators’ needs throughout the year. Questions explored in this talk will include - How do seasonal bloom patterns provide just what pollinators need at critical stages throughout the year? Where do bees get the protein necessary to ensure successful early spring brood growth? What role do fall blooming wildflowers play in aiding Monarch migration and pollinator over-wintering success? Are all flowering plants the same or what advantages do native species provide for the pollinator gardener?

Supporting Native Pollinators in Backyards to Barnyards with Connie Crancer
Zoom Webinar, February 23rd at 12:00 to 1:30pm
The 2nd presenter in the Native Plant Expo and Marketplace (NPEM) Speaker Series is Connie Crancer from the Pollinator Partnership, the largest non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems. Her presentation will address how to enhance and create habitat in our backyards and farms using native plants that not only support native pollinators and other beneficial insects and the ecosystem services they provide, but also support ecological resiliency, healthy soils and water ways and help to mitigate a world-wide insect and pollinator decline crisis. She will include national and state educational, technical and financial resources and opportunities.
