Join the Camden County Extension Office for a morning of fun learning about pollinators! We will have a brief presentation and discussion on different types of pollinators before taking part in the census in the Extension Office’s new native plant garden. After the census, there will be a presentation on native plants for pollinators and each participant will have the opportunity to make and take a bee bath to use in their landscape. In addition we will have a native plant and native seed swap! If you don’t have native plants to share — no worries — we should have some extras! (Native plants and seeds only please.)
