Please join us Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 6:30 PM, for the next lecture in the ongoing "Caring for all Creation" lectures series.  The lecture topic is "Planting a Pollinator Garden (butterflies, bees, birds and others)."  The lecture will be presented by Susan Carter, Horticulture Agent, CSU Extension.

Spring has arrived!  As we begin yard preparation and Spring planting, now is the time to include butterfly, bee, and other pollinator friendly plants in the landscape.

Three-fourths of the world’s flowering plants and about thirty-five percent of the world’s food crops depend on animal pollinators to reproduce. More than 3,500 species of native bees help increase crop yields. Some scientists estimate that one out of every three bites of food we eat exists because of animal pollinators like bees, butterflies and moths, birds and bats, and beetles and other insects.

The lecture is free and open to all.  Coffee and appetizers will be available at 6:00 PM
