Virtual Lunch and Learn: Pollinators 101

Wednesday, March 2 at 12 noon
FREE and open to the public

We all know that pollination is important, but why is it important and what exactly is pollination? More importantly, how can I create opportunities for more pollinators?

Join us for this in depth look at the varying aspects of pollination and what you can do in your own backyard to easily and affordably create a pollinator-friendly habitat.

Join Tamarya Sims, Community Farm Associate for the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and Certified Environmental Educator for NC, and Warren Willson College Professor of Biology Amy Boyd for this virtual program to learn more about how you can be part of the solution and help pollinators in your community.
