Pollinator Workshop

BEES AND BEYOND

                 A POLLINATOR AND BIODIVERSITY WORKSHOP

We are proud to be organizing a special workshop on pollinators and insect biodiversity. If you would like to learn more about these important animals and what we can do right here in Halton Hills to protect them, please join us! This event is free and open to one and all.

Club President Don Scallen has spent all his life studying our natural world, focusing on frogs, reptiles, butterflies and flora of Halton and the surrounding region. Past President Fiona Reid is a mammalogist with a keen interest in moths. Both Fiona and Don have spent many years studying and growing plants that are native to Halton Hills.

Don will talk about the importance of insect biodiversity and how we need to look not only at pollinators, but at all insects. Fiona will focus on pollinators and caterpillars and their intricate relationships with plants. She will also detail how to plant and grow the native flowering plants that we will be handing out to participants. These plants will also be free of charge!

Please join us and learn how best to help the small creatures upon which all life depends.
