Creating a Bee Friendly Habitat

Pollinator Talk at New Era Garden on July 29

Julie Serences will be giving a talk about bees and other pollinators on July 29 at 9:30 am at the New Era Community Garden, 208 26th St. (nearest cross street is C Street). Come and find out why bees are the best pollinators and explore native bee life cycles, among other fascinating topics. Julie will give a short talk and then we will do a walk through the garden to (hopefully) “hear” buzz pollination and see bee tongues on squash. Julie does a wonderful job of making the information accessible to all ages.

All ages are welcome. No pets, please. Please consider walking or riding your bike–we have very limited parking available. Try to park on C Street if at all possible. For more information please contact Tiffanie at tlsimpson7@aol.com.

Julie Serences is an educator with over 25 years of experience working with preschoolers to adults. Her workshops focus on teaching people to be land stewards of their own outdoor spaces by learning how to meet the habitat needs of the creatures around us. Julie became fascinated with native bees while researching native plants for her own backyard restoration eight years ago. She came to realize how important honeybees and native bee populations are to the life cycle of plants and other creatures in the garden. As she says,” they are the keystone species in our gardens.”
