Inviting Pollinators to your Backyard

Thursday, August 25, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.

Did you know that many of our insect pollinators are in decline and at risk of extinction? Without our insect pollinators, we would miss many fruits, vegetables, and nuts, like blueberries, squash, and almonds . . . not to mention chocolate and coffee!

So come join us to learn about pollinators native to Surry County, gardening practices that protect and sustain our pollinators, and tips for creating your own backyard pollinator garden. Handouts listing pollinator-friendly native plants will be provided and all who attend will take home a small native plant.

Location: Pollinator Garden at Historic Courthouse in Dobson (114 W. Atkins St.)

Class Size: Limited to first 30 to register.

Fee: $5 per person
