In honor of the new Tashjian Bee & Pollinator Center, join Professor Mary Meyer in an interactive discussion and “how to get started” tutorial for Minnesotans who would like to make their yard a more welcoming place for beneficial pollinators…and humans, too! Class will feature 1 hour of informational lecture including topics such as biodiversity, location, grass selection, flowering plants that provide pollen, herbicide and pesticide use, mowing and maintenance practices, and how to make your lawn more resistant to disease, insect or drought damage. Then class will move out to view the Arboretum’s Bee Lawn with commentary, insights and insider stories from Dr. Meyer, who was instrumental in its creation. You’ll leave inspired and ready to take actionable steps towards a lawn that the pollinators will love and the neighbors will envy.

Instructor:  Mary Meyer, University of Minnesota Professor, Extension Horticulturist, former Interim Director of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and past President of the American Society of Horticultural Science
