Grow Native! Webinar: Soft Landings: Providing Year-Round Sanctuary for Pollinators

August 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

Planting of green American beakgrain under trees with house in the background

Landscaping with keystone native tree species that host many insects as larvae is critically important to their survival, however, moths, butterflies, and other insects also need shelter throughout the year, including fallen leaves and natives planted under trees.

In this webinar presented by veteran native landscaper Paula Diaz, learn how you can make your native garden a year-round haven for all life stages of insects. 

Veteran native plant landscaper, Paula Diaz, has been a long time volunteer for Missouri Prairie Foundation, the Grow Native! program, and Deep Roots KC. Paula has also provided in person and virtual presentations related to human spaces’ impact on non-human species to groups large and small, young and not so young, representing MU Extension Master Gardeners, MDC, and even HOAs. Education on how to benefit our ecosystem is her passion.

The webinar, to be held via Zoom, will include a presentation and a question and answer session. The webinar will be recorded, and sent to all registrants, as well as posted to our YouTube channel.

Cost: Free
