Arboretum Pollinator Garden - butterfly (Nick Sloff)Do you want to attract pollinators to your yard, garden, cropland or conservation reserve planting?  The “Plan a Pollinator Party” program presented by the O’Brien County Conservation Board will provide information you need to begin this process.  Pollinators numbers are declining throughout the Midwest and other regions.  This event will bring attention not only to bees and butterflies but also inform participants about birds, beetles and other insects which help to produce food and pollinate plants.

“Plan a Pollinator Party” will be held on Sunday June 28 at 2:00 p.m. at the Prairie Heritage Center.  The program is free and of interest to people of all ages.  In addition to the information provided regarding attracting pollinators, there will also be an opportunity to learn about several projects going on throughout the state including registering your special place as a Monarch Waystation or a “Plant.Grow.Fly” garden.  You can also learn how to take part in a butterfly survey network within the state.

Contact the Conservation Board at 712-295-7200 for more information.
