DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — Pollinators are vital to food production all over the world. In Maine, examples of well-known pollinators include butterflies, birds, beetles and of course, bees. In June, the Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) worked with local volunteers to plant a Pollinator Sunflower Garden, a garden space for the public to enjoy, observe and learn about native pollinators.
In celebration of this new addition to the Law Farm, the PCSWCD will be holding a free Pollinators! event on Friday, August 16th from 10AM-12PM at the Law Farm in Dover-Foxcroft.
The PCSWCD is hosting Maine State Apiarist Jennifer Lund and Miss Michelle from Thompson Free Library for a morning of fun and learning for this event. Jennifer Lund will share facts and information about native pollinators. Miss Michelle will hold a pollinator-themed story time in the center of the garden. Afterwards, participants can join guests and PCSWCD staff for a “Pollinator Search & Find” at the Law Farm.
RSVP is required to attend and appreciated.
