Pollinator Biology and ID Skills Workshop at the OARDC

Calling all Master Gardeners, OCVN’ers and others interested in learning more about pollinators!

Come to Secrest Arboretum on May 25th for a hands-on half-day workshop. Participants will spend time in the classroom learning about pollinator biology and practicing identification skills, then we'll stroll through the gardens in search of spring pollinators.

Gardeners and naturalists play a vital role in the development and conservation of habitat that benefits pollinators, including bees, birds and butterflies. This program will focus on some of our most common pollinators, including their biology, identification and life history. We will also consider the practical steps everyone can take to create or enhance habitat, including plant selection and simple design elements. By creating a patchwork of spaces that provide food and shelter for pollinators, we can positively impact the health and survival of these important creatures.

Location: Secrest Arboretum, Wooster (Miller Pavilion)

Registration a MUST!


Please bring your lunch. Dress comfortably and for the weather.

Hope to see you later this month in Wooster!
