Melinda Myers and American Transmission Company (ATC) are offering three live webinars to learn more about how to incorporate pollinators into your garden and landscape.

Maintaining your landscape with pollinators in mind

Nearly all the world’s seed plants need pollinators to help plants make fruits or seeds by moving pollen from one part of a plant to another to fertilize it. Visits from bees, beetles, birds, butterflies and other pollinators result in larger, more flavorful fruits and higher crop yields.

But pollinator populations are decreasing, mainly due to loss of habitat. Grow Smart by adding native, pollinator-friendly plants to your yard to increase their habitat and chances for survival. Adding native plants doesn’t require a lot of space or even a lot of effort. Join us to learn more.
