The Syracuse Public Library has received several one-square-foot seed packets, featuring Midwest wildflowers, to give away. Up to three packets are given to each family either at the library or during the native plant sale from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, June 4, at the WACF property on SR 13. The purpose of planting the seeds is not just to be a food resource for local pollinators but to offer a habitat in the soil for the native bees.
The seed sponsors, Tangled Bank Studios and PBS-Nature, have made a movie that shows the amount of activity a bee-friendly area provides in, “My Garden of a Thousand Bees.” Come for a showing at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 9. The Syracuse Public Library is facilitating a series of meetings called “In the Garden.” Contact Becky Brower, email@example.com, to receive emails with “In the Garden” notifications for field trips, book discussion topics, walks and trail maintenance. Make a point this summer to meet our local pollinators.
