Save the 3 Bs (Bees, Butterflies and Beneficials) Workshop [OK]

Kerr Center staff and Anne Stine from the Xerces Society will cover how to identify pollinators and pollinator plants; what you can plant to help monarch butterflies and other pollinators; and how to attract  “good” bugs to your garden.

Participants will get outside to see pollinators and native plants in the center’s organic vegetable garden, cattle ranch, and office landscape.

They will receive an extensive packet of resources to use at home or in the classroom. Included will be the 2014 book Farming with Native Beneficial Insects from the Xerces Society.

In addition, attendees will get the Kerr Center’s just published full-color guidebook Native Plants for Native Pollinators in Oklahoma. This book, loaded with photos and information, is the first of its kind in Oklahoma to bring together information on Oklahoma’s native plants and pollinators in one book.

Workshop space is limited, so register early. Pre-registration is required by May 28. Cost is $50 per person; $25 for spouse or child from the same family. (Families will receive one set of resources.) Registration includes lunch, drinks and snacks.
