April Nature Night: Gardening for Pollinators

April 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Can’t tell a milkweed from a monarda? Want to attract pollinators to your yard, but aren’t sure where to start? Join CLC and Tim Kennelty to learn more about how to create pollinator habitat!

Pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths, flies and beetles provide an ecological service that is essential to the health of our environment. Yet with habitat loss, climate change, and the increase of invasive species, the threat to pollinators has never been greater. This talk will provide an introduction to the basics on pollinators, as well as the plants you can incorporate into your garden to support them.

Tim Kennelty is a Master Gardener and Master Naturalist volunteer through Cornell Cooperative Extension. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Columbia Land Conservancy. He has gardened in Columbia County for more than 30 years and has developed a passion for preserving native species and combating exotic invasive plants.  He has been involved in a multi-year habitat restoration project at the Siegel-Kline Kill public conservation area in Ghent, New York.
