Join One Nature and local bee expert Timothy Stanley as we explore New York’s native flowers and their preferred pollinators. From the earliest spring ephemerals to the last fall blossoms; flowers have devised unique methods to attract visitors to transport their pollen from flower to flower, ensuring genetic diversity. This program will highlight our native bees, sometimes described as pollen bees. They are not only extremely efficient, but have also developed unique techniques for pollinating flowers that honeybees are incapable of pollinating!
Participants will not only learn about the flowers that attract pollinators but get tips on how to do it successfully. The single most effective means of helping pollinators is planting a wide selection of insecticide free flowers that bloom from early spring to late fall. Audiences will leave informed, delighted, and ready to transform backyards into pollinator habitats.
