About the Event

Pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects, are essential to our environment. The ecological service they provide is necessary for the reproduction of more than 85% of the world's flowering plants and is fundamental to agriculture and natural ecosystems. 

Learn how to attract native pollinators to your coastal communities.  Keren Giovengo, EcoScapes Sustainable Land Use Program Manager of the University of Georgia Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant, will speak on the diversity and importance of native pollinators and how to select, source, and design pollinator-friendly native plant habitats.
