GARDENING FOR POLLINATORS With Tim Kennelty, Master Gardener
Updated: Oct 2, 2022
Join us at 10am on October 22, 2022 at the West Taghkanic Firehouse (across from Town Hall) for a presentation by Tim Kennelty, CCE Master Gardener and Master Naturalist. A Taghkanic resident and gardener for over 30 years, Tim has developed a passion for preserving native species and combating exotic invasive plants.
Pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths, flies and
beetles provide an ecological service that is essential to the health of our environment. Yet with habitat loss, climate change and the increase of invasive species, the threat to pollinators has never been greater.
Tim's talk will provide an introduction to the basics of pollinators, as well as the plants you can incorporate in your garden to support them.
