Prairie Plants & Pollinators

Friday August 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

A field of purple coneflower, yarrow and other native plants.

Looking to attract some of the 150+ species of butterfly found in Manitoba to your yard?

In this workshop, we will explore some incredible Manitoba species of pollinators and prairie plants. Planting prairie plants is one way to engage in local conservation, as Prairie ecosystems are becoming one of the most endangered ecosystems in all of North America. CPAWS Environmental Educator Carly Gray will share some planting tips as well as seeds she has collected from her garden and prairie restoration sites. We will explore the relationships between butterflies, host plants, and feeder plants – incorporating creativity to plan out a pollinator garden! Carly has kept a gardening journal over the past few years and is looking forward to sharing this practice with workshop participants!

Each attendee will receive a Nature Journal.  This event will take place in the library and along the Carman Community Pathway. Please dress appropriately.

Children under the age of 12 must have a caregiver present for the duration of the event.

Registration opens July 23 @ 10am.

This event is funded by Healthy Together Now and is part of our experience nature program.
