Gardening for Diversity – Introductory Presentation

Gardening for Diversity - Introductory Presentation

Jan 12, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Invite nature into your backyard, grow beautiful pollinator and bird habitat and support native plants and ecosystems by joining us for our Gardening for Diversity series! Learn what a pollinator is, why we care about them, why they are in trouble, and how you can help them!

This introductory presentation is perfect for beginning gardeners and anyone who is interested in supporting native plantings in their outdoor spaces. Humankind is and has always been inextricably interconnected with pollinators. Our lives are made healthier and more delicious because of their hard work. Join Naturalist Michelle Biodrowski from Pottawattamie Conservation, and embark on a pollinator adventure!

Space is limited. Stop by or contact the Reference Desk at 712-323-7553, to register. This first session is free and open to the public. Face masks are recommended in public indoor settings.
