Protecting Pollinators: Nurturing Sustainable Communities with Pollinator Gardens
Without pollinators, like bees and butterflies, the world would be a dull and bland place. How can we make sure these creatures are always fluttering, soaring, and buzzing around us? And how does their presence make our communities more sustainable overall?
Join us for a conversation about turning areas historically dominated by invasive species into vibrant pollinator habitats. See why these pollinators are so important not just to our natural world, but to our local neighborhoods as well. And, get perspectives from project leaders that successfully created thriving pollinator gardens in their local communities.
Our speakers include:
- Jodi Helmer, author of Protecting Pollinators: How to Save the Creatures that Feed Our World
Felicia (Brodzky) Jones, Economic Development Director for the Town of Canaan-Falls Village, and leader of the successful ioby project “Pollinator Friendly Falls Village”
- Aleksandra Moch, Environmental Analyst for the City of Greenwich, CT, and leader of the successful ioby project “Pollinator Pathway at North Street”
This webinar is co-hosted by ioby and Island Press.
