They will discuss the many advantages of gardening with native plants and answer your practical questions about how to turn your yard or balcony into a pollinator paradise. Their research into pollinator gardens and ecosystem services in the Prairies has shown that nature-based solutions can help cities face the challenges of climate change and improve residents’ quality of life and well-being. Native species bring additional benefits such as reduced water use, pesticide and fertilizer use, biodiversity conservation, the creation of pollinator corridors, urban beautification, cultural preservation, and physical and mental health.
