Bulletin Board: Pollinator program, comedy at Tandy’s and more

Audubon to host pollinator program

Join Master Gardener Nancy Wilson on Wednesday as she shares the fascinating specialized features that both plants and pollinators have developed to optimize success. Pollinators and flowering plants have evolved together over millions of years. What does the color or shape of a flower reveal about its pollinator? What intricate adaptations have pollinators developed to take advantage of the nutrition offered by these flowers? This exploration will add to your appreciation and fascination for both flowers and pollinators.

Pollinators are a vital part of our world. It is estimated that one out of every three bites of food we eat exists because of pollinators. Unfortunately, pollinator numbers are declining but research shows that our backyards, and even container gardens, can and do make a difference for pollinator survival.

This program is part of the New Hampshire Audubon Pollinator Speaker Series: Celebrating and Engaging in Pollinator Conservation.

The event is free ($5 donation recommended). Register online at nhaudubon.org/calendar.
