[FERNDALE] – Butterflies, bees and bugs have important roles in the environment and many of them play essential and critical roles in the garden. Sullivan Renaissance will explore the topic of beneficials during a seminar entitled “Butterflies, Bees and Bugs, Oh My” this Wednesday, November 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Ferndale.
The seminar will show how to attract butterflies, choose the best plants for a butterfly garden, and identify the most common butterflies in this area. Participants will learn about the role played by bees and beneficial bugs – and what to do to attract these useful friends.
Seminar presenters include: Marian Dolan of Butterfly Botanicals in Bloomingburg; Susan Dollard, Master Gardener Coordinator at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County; and long-time beekeeper Jim Kyle, President of Sullivan County Beekeepers Association.
Everyone is welcome. Pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided. To register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at www.sullivanrenaissance.org or 845-295-2445.
