Selecting Native Trees and Shrubs that Support Pollinators

Heather Holm

Local author and pollinator expert Heather Holm discusses the habitat and food requirements of birds and bees, and which of the native trees and shrubs provide flowers for bees, and insects, seeds, or fruit for birds. She will also describe natural communities related to those native woody plants, and cover the range of influences that cue pollinator visits--flower structure, resources and phenology. 
Books will be available for sale and signing.
No Chapter Meeting in February • Please join us at the Wild Ones Design with Nature Conference on February 18th.

Native Plant Winter Sowing and Seed Exchange



Join us for our fourth annual native plant seed exchange and winter seed sowing project. Carmen Simonet, landscape architect and native plant enthusiast will start the evening off with a presentation on growing native plants from seed. 

We'll have soil, seed and the other tools needed for this project but if you have seed harvested from your garden bring some to share - please have marked with common and Latin name. Also bring containers (clean empty large size yogurt container with lid or something similar). 


See you in January!

And special thanks to Roz Johnson, Jo Ann Musumeci and Kathleen O'Connell for sharing their travel photos and stories at our November Potluck meeting!
