Bees are the best-known pollinators because they carry pollen over their entire bodies as they fly from flower to flower. But butterflies do their fair share of pollinating, too. Mike Malloy

Would you like to learn ways to bring butterflies, birds, bees, and other pollinators to your garden? With a little know-how and planning, you can.

Join the Floyd County Master Gardeners and the Floyd County Extension Office for a Designing Gardens for Pollinators Workshop at Chieftains Museum from 12-2pm on Saturday, March 24th.

Explore the plants that attract pollinators, as well as host plants for their eggs and caterpillars and plans for year-long blooms. With some simple strategies, you can have a garden full of lively pollinators that are not only beneficial, they are a delightful too.

This workshop is free and open to the public. For more information about the workshop, contact the Floyd County Extension Office at (706)-295-6210.
