All ages. Weather permitting this program will be held outside in front of the library. Bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating.

Pollinators are responsible for helping over 80% of the world’s flowering plants to reproduce. Without them, humans and wildlife wouldn’t have much to eat or look at! Join Brian, one of the founders of Bees in the D, to learn how to grow plants in your yard and garden that help benefit pollinators.

Bees in the D is a Detroit nonprofit organization dedicated to educating about the importance of pollinators and the conservation of honeybees while building a network of urban honeybee hives throughout Detroit, Southeast Michigan, and internationally in Canada.

Registration is required and will end at noon on the day of the program. Register here or call 586.751.5377.
