In this New England Wildflower Society lecture you learn that as New England’s landscape becomes increasingly developed, backyards are becoming a “final frontier” in providing essential habitat for at-risk pollinator species that play an integral role in the health of our environment. Garden coach and habitat naturalist Ellen Sousa explains how to help sustain and restore pollinator populations in your own backyard, regardless of its size or location. Learn to choose the best plants to help feed and shelter pollinators, and some best practices for encouraging biodiversity in your backyard. A tour of appropriate plantings at Garden in the Woods follows the morning’s lecture.
