This April, our Arboretum Adult Education series continues with “Let’s Talk Pollinators.” We are excited to welcome Dr. Danesha Seth Carley, an associate professor of horticultural science at North Carolina State University, as our guest speaker on Zoom.

The topic of the class will be, “Let’s Talk Pollinator Gardening: Plan and plant your way to successful and bee-utiful pollinator gardens.” This class will be offered virtually as part of our Arboretum Adult Education series. The class will be held on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, at 11 a.m.

Registration is required for this free program. You must register on Eventbrite to participate. Registration will open two weeks before the class date. This class is part of the Arboretum Adult Education series that is typically held at the Arboretum and Gardens at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC. Due to current restrictions on gatherings, this class will be offered online using Zoom. The information in this class will focus on recommendations for Forsyth County, NC, and the Piedmont region.

Every thoughtfully designed garden, no matter how small, can play a huge role in providing the habitat, nourishment, and nesting places so needed by pollinators. This presentation will bring science and art together to guide you through building, renovating, or enhancing your garden to help foster and protect pollinators and create your very own pollinator haven. We will discuss choosing locations, selecting the best plants for pollinators, how to consider seasonality in your garden design, how your landscape can help protect beneficials in your garden, and much more.
