National Pollinator Week
June 19, 2019, 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree with parking
We’re excited about our pollinator friends and you should be too! Join us Monday through Friday, June 17th-21st, to help us celebrate the creatures that are needed for the reproduction of 90% of flowering plants and 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day. Pollinators are all part of the intricate biological web that helps to support diversity in our eco-system and sustains our quality of life.
We’ll meet each morning in the Pollinator Garden—with a different guest speaker as well as a Cantigny staff member. Each day we will highlight a particular plant and explain which pollinator(s) it appeals to—whether it be butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, bees of all kinds, beetles or even flies! We will encourage you to join in the call to action to help our pollinators—by joining us in the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge.
There are three simple steps to participating in the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge:
• Plant something for Pollinators
• Register you Garden at MillionPollinatorGardens.org
• Spread the word and get others to join in!
And to get you off to a great start we’re going to give away 1 plant per family each day, to get your own pollinator garden established! Bring a friend along and learn how to beea part of this collaborative effort!
