Did you know that communities all over the world are making and linking pesticide-free, native-plant gardens, meadows and forests to encourage beneficial insect and bird species? Especially bees, which are dying out and so essential to our ecosystems.
And we can do this right here in the Rivertowns, beginning in our own gardens.
Please join us at this free public event with Kim Eierman of EcoBeneficial®. It’s on Tuesday, February 19, at 9:45 AM at the O’Hara Nature Center on Mountain Road in Irvington.
Kim is a well known environmental horticulturist who specializes in ecological landscapes and native plants. She teaches at the New York Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and The Native Plant Center.
Overflow parking will be allowed on the same side of the road as the Center. Refreshments will be served.
