Pollinator Gardens for the Anthropocene | Claudia West and Harland Patch
WED., SEPT. 13 | 6 P.M. – 8 P.M. |
Special Events Hall at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden
Public awareness of the plight of pollinators has grown. Property owners are looking to designers and land managers for guidance on how to support these creatures. As we strive to showcase and champion biodiversity, pollinator-focused plantings are becoming more and more common. But how do we know that our gardens are really serving the ecological goals to which they aspire? In this presentation Claudia and Harland will discuss how a truly biodiverse and ecologically functional pollinator garden can be built on twin foundations of science and design. While The Arboretum at Penn State’s new Pollinator and Bird Garden will serve as a case study, the presenters will focus on principles and practices that can be employed in any large or small project.
$18 members | $20 non-members
Pollinator Gardens for the Anthropocene will take place at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. The Conservatory address is: One Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
