Baltimore County Master Gardeners “Pollen Nation” team members will have information on pollinators, why they are important; the plants they love, and how you can create or add to your pollinator garden at home.

Stop by anytime between 1pm-4pm to explore:
*Mason Bees & Leaf Cutter Bees
*Monarch Butterflies
*Other local pollinators and the plants they love
& more !

Presentation, a special treat at 1:15pm / Barbara Gruver, a beekeeper for 35 years, will present a lively look into the wide world of pollination. Barbara and her husband discovered an exciting variety of native pollinators when she and her husband planted acres of flowering plants on their farm in northern Harford County. Lots more than honeybees came for the feast!
