Late Season Pollinator Workshop
Join The Art of Ecology for a summer morning’s workshop, geared towards getting you outside, exploring local habitats, and discovering a few ways that homeowners can take easy actions to protect pollinators that visit their property.
What to Expect:
During this Late Season Pollinator workshop, we will take a walk through a property in the process of creating certified pollinator habitat to take a look at what elements of the habitat will support late season pollinators. During this plant-for-pollinators ID walk, participants will also engage in planting demonstrations to learn proper planting techniques that will help your native plants-for-pollinators thrive and establish themselves over the winter so they are ready to bloom in the spring! We shall also discuss ways that pollinators will be starting to get ready for the winter season by creating galls, resting in leaf litter, or hibernating in the ground! At the end, participants will get to create their own pollinator seed balls that will need the coming cold snap in order for them to germinate properly in the spring.
Located at the Winkler property: 261 Old New Road, Doylestown PA, 18901
Admission: $20/pp. A portion of the proceeds is used to restore pollinator habitats locally in Doylestown! Space is limited to only 15 participants, so be sure to save your space and register early!
These programs are designed for homeowners to learn more about ways to improve habitat for wildlife on their property, however the workshops are open for any age, 10+.
