Pollinators are crucial to the health of the planet, from the food we eat to the cycle of life. Unfortunately, native pollinators are declining and that brings up lots of questions for researchers, including Garden scientist Amy Iler, Ph.D. Learn more about native pollinators found here in Illinois, pollination, and why it’s important. Then Nancy Clifton, horticulture program specialist, guides you in making your own native bee “home” to take home. Limit 20. Pre-registration required. This workshop is suitable for ages 8 (with accompanying adult) and up; adults only may also register.
