This special presentation is a fascinating journey showcasing the development of different flower types and the presentation of floral resources to pollinators. Exploring the types of insect pollinators, their foraging behavior, and the floral features that attract pollinators, Holm will provide specific examples of how native plants are pollinated and which pollinator is most effective and why. A catch and release walk in the Gardens will follow, weather permitting. The event concludes with a book signing hosted by Full Circle Bookstore.
