Selecting Plants for Pollinators
The second in a series of webinars hosted by Pollinator Partnership Canada with Habitat Acquisition Trust and Saanich Native Plants. The webinar series is for land managers, students, farmers, and gardeners with a focus on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
In this webinar, we will look at a suite of native species that tend to attract a diversity and abundance of pollinators. We will touch on why native plants are important, plant identification, what pollinators are attracted to particular plants, as well as other considerations when incorporating native species.
