Pollinator Habitat: Planting for Bees & Butterflies Class August 26th

Pollinator Habitat: Planting for Bees & Butterflies Class Native & domesticated bees pollinate 30% of US crops and 75% of the flowering plants in Minnesota. Populations of wild and tame bees, as well as pollinating beetles, flies, moths, and butterflies, have plummeted in the last few years, partly due to habitat loss. There are many ways landowners large & small can promote pollinators. Learn how to establish a native plant habitat for pollinators via DIY or hired-out methods. Learn about planning & funding assistance. We will visit 2 or 3 sites, new and established, during this 2 hour class. When: Saturday, August 26, 2017, 10:00 a.m. to noon Cost: $10 per person, $15 per group or family. To register contact: Cloquet Community Education, 879-1261. Instructor: Kelly Smith of Carlton County SWCD and local Woodland Advisor. Please dress for the outdoors. We will meet at the Zion Lutheran Church parking lot, 1000 Washington Ave, Cloquet, MN.
