Bees, Birds and Butterflies    Sun Apr 19, 2020, Scarborough, ON

Expand your knowledge of native bees, butterflies and birds and the native plants they depend on for survival. Tickets are $20 and pre-registration is required.

Do you want to learn more about protecting pollinators?

This event will be of interest to gardeners wanting to expand their knowledge of native plants which are vital to the survival of wild bees, birds and butterflies, pollinators that we depend on. Urbanization, gardening practices, pesticides and climate change have all contributed to the crisis that many of our native pollinators face. Please join us to learn about simple changes you can make to increase their chances of survival. Our expert speakers will talk about the following topics:

Butterflies and their Host Plants - Carol Pasternak
Native Bees and Their Habitat - Madison Marshall
Local Birds - Corey Cameron
Plants native to Southern Ontario - Debra Metsger

Volunteer Opportunity!

If you might be interested in joining the volunteer force of the Guildwood Butterflyway Project, this will be your opportunity to sign up! This training will qualify you to become a David Suzuki Foundation Butterflyway Ranger. Butterflyway Rangers volunteer their time at local public events where we promote the benefits of planting for pollinators. More information will be provided at the event.
