BEAS AND BUTTERFLY POLLINATOR GARDEN

BEAS AND BUTTERFLY POLLINATOR GARDEN AT KOOBS NATURE AREA

 

We are offering a FREE educational experience designing, building, and maintaining the Pollinator Garden at Koobs Nature Area in Carmichael.  We will be learning about different pollinators and their effect on an ecosystem and using that knowledge to design and revitalize the butterfly garden area.  Once we have this garden in shape, we will continue to maintain it on a weekly basis and be prepared to showcase its successes at the monthly Open Day at Koobs.  We will be focusing on natural science and the art of gardening in this project.

What is a Pollinator Garden?

A pollinator garden is a garden that is planted predominately with flowers that provide nectar or pollen for a wide range of pollinating insects.  A pollinator-friendly garden needs to provide insects with shelter and warmth, and possibilities

Why Plant A Pollinator Garden?

From backyards to tropical rainforests, the intricate web that sustains life on the planet depends on native pollinators.  Closer to home, pollinators fertilize one-third of all our food crops the fruit, vegetables, and nuts we eat all depend on pollinators. Butterflies, bees, birds, and other pollinators forage to find patches of food, water, shelter, and nesting sites.

Come join BEAS Academy in planning, planting, growing, watching, and enjoying our favorite pollinators.

This project is made possible by the generous support of Roots and Shoots and the Kiwanis Club of Carmichael
