NOWO – April Speaker Series: Pollinators


Getting to Know Michigan Pollinators

Presenter: Valerie Malaney, North Oakland Wild Ones/MSU Pollinator Champion & Conservation Steward

How many pollinators can you name that are native to Michigan?  This speaker series will introduce you to the numerous pollinators that you might find in your yard or local nature area.  The session will take an in-depth look at pollinators and beneficial insects that rely on native plants. Learn how to identify a Bumblebee from a Honeybee, as well as the many other bees and their look-a-likes.  You will also learn more about how to provide food (pollen and nectar) and habitat to support these really important Michigan pollinators!

April is Citizen Science Month and some information about using Seek & iNaturalist will also be shared
