Are you interested in attracting pollinators to your yard? Join us on September 11th, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Salamonie’s Interpretive Center to learn how to identify native plants specifically essential to Indiana pollinators. The workshop is expected to last at least two hours. Workshop will be held rain or shine.

Our speaker Jake Wyatt will share his knowledge of native plant species. Wyatt, an Indiana Master Naturalist, is a Huntington County native whose hobby and passion for native versus ornamental species covers many years.

We will have an introductory presentation inside our building to learn why supporting native pollinators is so important. The focus will be on native plants that are important for the survival of our pollinators. Outdoor hands-on learning will view native plants and pollinator species in their natural habitats.

–Dress for the weather, there will be some walking to locate plants. There will also be
caravanning to locations within Lost Bridge West.
–Cost is $10 per person.
–Space is limited.
–Advance registration is required by calling 260-468-2127.
