A Party for the Pollinators
Monday, August 7, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On August 7th from 5-7 PM, the Cornell Cooperative Extension Teaching Garden will be hosting a Party for the Pollinators. Danielle Wolleman is a Cornell University student interning at CCE, organizing the event, and planning fun, insect-related educational activities for visitors of all ages. Guests will hear from John Losey an Entomology Professor, Roger Ort CCE’s Local Foods and Agriculture Educator, and Debbie Ball one of CCE Schuyler County’s Master Gardeners. Together, these knowledgeable individuals will teach about beneficial insects and introduce ways to involve oneself in the continuation of these important native species. Additional event highlights include the unveiling of a new pollinator hotel as well as a ladybug release. Tours will also be offered so that members of the community may familiarize themselves with the space. Those interested in learning, tasting, or observing should certainly stop by the CCE Schuyler Teaching Garden, located at 323 Owego Street, Montour Falls, New York. On the summer night of August 7th, light refreshments will be provided for guests at the event.
