Bill Hendricks of Klyn Nurseries, Inc. will instruct you on the inclusion of trees and shrubs in your landscape that will attract and feed pollinators throughout the gardening season.Handouts of the trees discussed will be provided.

Following his talk, Hendricks will accompany Curator Thomas Draves on a tour of the arboretum grounds to observe the selected tree species, as well as many more valuable species to include in the gardener’s palette.
