Butterflies & Hummingbirds: Extraordinary Pollinators
Join us for a FREE lecture on Thursday, August 2nd, 2018 at 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. at the Forest Resource Education Center, 495 Don Connor Boulevard, Jackson, NJ 08527.
Pollinators are integral to our ecosystem, from the food we eat and the beautiful flowers that we grow. In fact, the are key to the production of nearly 75 percent of crops and almost 80 percent of all flowering plants.
The FREC and the Ocean County Master Gardeners will offer a free lecture program to discuss how to increase the survival opportunities for pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds. Creating pollinator habitat includes choosing native flowers and host plants for insects.
Join us to discuss ways to make your garden a haven for these beautiful and useful creatures.
