Do you want to attract pollinators to your yard, garden, cropland or
conservation reserve planting? The “Pollinator Plantings” 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.
This event will be held on Sunday, March 26 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. Put those garden catalogues to
work! This program will be a great way to welcome spring back to Iowa
