Did you know that over 80% of the world’s flowering plants, including crops that feed humans and animals, need pollinators? But, pollinator species are in distress as their habitats have become threatened by various human activities. In this free program you’ll learn all about hummingbirds, butterflies and bees and how to help them and how to attract them to your yard and garden.
Our presenters for this program are Larry and Emily Scheunemann, who have a 30-acre farm in Whitewater that focuses on hummingbirds and monarchs. Larry and Emily were featured in the June/July 2017 issue of “Our Wisconsin” magazine, and each year they open their farm to the public in September to observe Hummingbird banding and Monarch tagging. Attendees of this program will learn about their farm and how you can visit it during their open houses.
This program will be held in the Indoor Learn Center at Nature At The Confluence and you’ll also be invited to visit our new Pollinator Garden. There is no cost for the program, but a free will offering will be taken to support our Pollinator Garden. No registration is needed, but seating is limited to 55 people.
