The Birds & The Bees (& The Butterflies): Building A Pollinator-Friendly Yard
Pollinators are an essential part of our ecosystem, and have been in decline for years. We talk about small and big ways that you can help support pollinators, in your garden, yard, and outdoor spaces, and what species of pollinators and pollinator-plants are native to New Hampshire.
Air date: Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
- Diane De Luca - Senior biologist at the New Hampshire Audubon, where she oversees pollinator conservation projects and the pollinator demonstration garden.
- Emma Erler - Landscape and greenhouse specialist for the UNH Cooperative Extension.
- Donna Miller - Owner of Petals in the Pines, a farm and nature center in Canterbury that has native habitats, including a pollinator meadow and woodland trails, and educational activities. She is also the organizer of the N.H. Monarch Festival and a N.H. master gardener.
