Dundas’ Urquhart Butterfly Garden hosts talk on pollinators

Community Jul 17, 2017 Dundas Star News

Learn how you can encourage pollinators, whether you have a garden or not.

Environmentalist of the Year award winner Jen Baker will explain how on Saturday, July 22.  Baker began the Pollinators for Paradise Project several years ago, and has a vast knowledge about the importance of pollinators and what they need.

Baker also has 20 years of experience in acquiring lands for habitat restoration and protection.

Pollinator populations are rapidly declining due to habitat loss, chemical use and climate change. People depend on pollinators for much of the food they eat and can play a significant role in helping to prevent their further decline.

The Planting for Pollinators program begins at 11 a.m.

The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is located at the canal end of Centennial Park in Dundas. Bring a chair and wear a sun hat.  Lots of free parking available, and the garden is on a bus route.
