TOPSHAM, Maine — Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District is holding an educational event on June 28th, 2019, from 9:00am-12:00pm, at the Topsham Public Library, 25 Foreside Road, Topsham, ME. This workshop will help guide people through the observation, identification, and ecology of pollinators. Other topics such as pollinator habitat needs, environmental stressors, and what property owners can do to create more high value habitat for pollinators will be discussed as well.
Wildlife Ecologist Deb Perkins will be sharing her expert opinions and experiences gathered over 25 years in the field. Deb also owns and is the sole proprietor of First Light Wildlife Habitat.
After the classroom portion of this event, we will be going to Whatley Farm to tour their fields in search of pollinators. If you’re unable to attend the visit to the farm, please feel free to attend the classroom portion of the event! If you do plan on attending the visit to Whatley Farm, please bring comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, and binoculars if you have them.
Registration for this event is free! To register, contact Mackenzie Richard at Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District, (207) 241-5374.
