The October 20, 2021 member meeting topic was GROW BACK BETTER, presented by Marilyn Trent and Stephanie Smith
Learn about the benefits of leaving the leaves for our moths, butterflies and other beneficial insects, the seed heads for the birds and stalks for the bees. Soft landings will be presented by Stephanie Smith, Rochester Pollinators board member. She will discuss the diverse native plantings under keystone trees (or any other regionally appropriate native tree). These plantings provide critical shelter and habitat for one or more life cycle stages of moths, butterflies, and beneficial insects such as bumblebees, fireflies, lacewings, and beetles.
