Best Plants for Pollinators

The Wild Ones of Door County will present “Prairie and Savanna Plants for Pollinator Gardens” on Nov. 16, 7 pm at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Neil Diboll, president of Prairie Nursery, is the featured speaker.

The importance of pollinators to human wellbeing is of increasing concern, as population decreases in these critical components of our ecosystems and food production systems. Gardeners can plant a multitude of native flowers that attract and sustain the amazing diversity of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, beneficial wasps and even pollinating flies. Diboll will highlight the best prairie plants for attracting these marvelous creatures to gardens to help maintain the balance and productivity of our natural world.

This program is free and open to the public. Crossroads at Big Creek is located at 2041 Michigan St., Sturgeon Bay.
