Event Details

Join Nancy Adamson and the Frederick Master Gardener Baywise volunteers for a presentation on native pollinators and other agriculturally beneficial insects, and their habitat needs, followed by a tour of the Frederick Master Gardener Native Hedgerow & Pawpaw Patch Demonstration Gardens. The native hedgerow and pawpaw patch include a diversity of native perennial wildflowers, shrubs, and trees designed to form a dense, diverse hedgerow for supporting wildlife. The Frederick Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens are open to the public and highlight environmentally beneficial landscaping practices that protect our watersheds and improve our quality of life. The native hedgerow and pawpaw patch support beneficial insects such as pollinators, predators, and parasitoids that depend on nectar, pollen, and shelter throughout the year.

Nancy is a Pollinator Conservation Specialist with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service East National Technology Support Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. She studied native bee crop pollinators in southwest Virginia while earning a doctoral degree in entomology. Nancy has long been involved in ecological restoration, propagating native plants, and promoting ecologically-minded landscaping in the mid-Atlantic US. She supports creating and protecting habitat for pollinators and other beneficial insects through planting habitat, minimizing pesticide use, and increasing awareness of the importance of native bees in crop pollination.  She is a former Frederick Master Gardener and Horticulture Program Extension Educator and is very happy to have the chance to visit and share her current habitat work.
