Native Plant Day On Governors Island

June 17, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm UTC+0


Join us on Governors Island for our monthly Native Plant Days, from May through October!

Curious about the relationship between native plants and pollinators?  Eager to get your hands in the soil?

Come join us for a Native Plant Day on Governors Island in The Bee Conservancy’s Bee Sanctuary at the Urban Farm. Bring questions for our native plant specialist and learn about the blooms that pollinators depend on. Learn how to create healthy pollinator habitat for bees, butterflies, beetles and more. Engage in hands-on gardening activities that support these habitats. Discover the wonders of ground and cavity nesting bees, pollen and nectar sources, and the co-evolution of plants and pollinators. Leave with a packet of regional seeds of your very own!
