University of Maine Cooperative Extension will offer a webinar about selecting native plants for a pollinator-friendly garden from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, July 20, according to a news release from the UMaine Extension office based in Orono.

Choosing Native Plants for Pollinators can inform participants about how to select native plants for pollinators and specific growing conditions for different planting combinations, as well as offer time for questions. UMaine Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Ginger Laurits will discuss the role native plants play in Maine ecosystems and how to support local pollinator populations by planting native species.

This session is the first in a six-part summer gardening webinar series to be offered every other Monday through September.

Registration is required; a $5 donation is optional. Register on the event webpage extension.umaine.edu/register/product/summer-gardening-series-choosing-native-plants-for-pollinators/ to attend or to receive the link to the recording.
