Nanette O'Hara, Tampa Estuary Program
If you plant it, they will come! But what to plant, and when, and exactly WHAT will come? This interactive presentation will highlight simple tips for attracting bees, butterflies, moths and beneficial wasps to your own piece of Florida paradise.
The talk will highlight a recommended “Pollinator Palette” of native wildflowers, trees, and shrubs for West Central Florida landscapes. Florida alone has 316 native bee species – come learn how even tiny urban habitats can help support these critically important engines of food production!
