Please join Green Jay Landscaping for the “What’s all the Buzz about Pollinators?”.

When: Friday, October 14, 2016, 8:30-10:30 a.m.

Where: FCWC Conservation Café at Pace University, Pleasantville, New York

Bees, flies, wasps, beetles, butterflies, birds, and beyond all pollinate plants and are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. Pollinators provide a keystone ecosystem-service one that is vital for keeping a healthy environment.

Join Conservation Café—a consortium of seven Westchester County-based partners—for a discussion on pollinators. Learn about why pollinators are important, what has been happening to pollinator populations, and what you can dot in your own backyard to encourage pollinators.

Speakers for the program include:

  • Greg Wechgelaer-Senior Naturalist & Apiarist at the Greenburgh Nature Center will speak on the importance of pollinators

  • Shaun McCoshum- Preserve Manager & Educator at Westchester Land Trust will highlight on what’s going on with the pollinator populations

  • Lori Fontanes- co-head of the Rye Sustainability Committee’s Healthy Yard Program will present on what homeowners can plant to encourage pollinators.
