Event Details

Join NYC Eco-Schools, Kerissa Fuccillo of the Community Greenways Collaborative / New York Phenology Project, and Gateway National Recreation Area staff for an exciting workshop at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge: "Gardening for Pollinators in NYC."

This workshop will explore the following topics: What are pollinators? Why are they important? Why are they in trouble? How can we help them? You will learn to identify species of native pollinators and pollinator-host plants, understand how climate change is impacting plant-pollinator interactions, how to build a native plant/pollinator garden in your school using NWF’s standards-aligned Schoolyard Habitats® program, set up phenology trails and use citizen science to monitor native pollinators with your students.

This workshop is capped at 21 people and is an introduction to the "Growing a Wild Brooklyn and Queens" program, being piloted by the workshop leaders.

A $10 fee will be collected to help pay for materials.

Attendees must provide their own food, drinks, and transportation to and from the Refuge.
