urban forest initiative tree week 2020 pollinator garden



This is an informational event that will inspire children and parents to grow pollinator gardens. Wildflowers attract colorful butterflies, happy bees of all sizes, even dainty little hummingbirds. The flowers are showy and attractive, and the vegetation provides cover for a lot of small wildlife such as garden birds, rabbits, chipmunks, and insects. Overall, a pollinator garden can make your yard a hub of activity for urban wildlife, and children will enjoy watching different critters over the seasons. Come and learn what kind of plants to grow, when to grow them, and how to maintain them. Take home a packet of pollinator seeds to get started right away. As an additional fun feature, we will have some fascinating creepy crawlies on demo for kids to observe.
