Can you imagine life without tomatoes, corn or roses? Bats, hummingbirds, ants, beetles, wasps, butterflies, moths, flies and even lizards are “busy as bees” each spring and summer pollinating fruits, vegetables, flowers. In fact, more than 100,000 invertebrate species as well as 1,035 species of vertebrates, including birds, mammals, and reptiles, all help pollinate the plants we depend on. Join the Dolley Madison Garden Club for this free public lecture to learn how you can protect these essential members of our ecosystem.
