Event Details

Time: Saturday 19th May 2012, 12 noon – 2PM

Location: Native Plant Display Garden, East 15th Street and Union Square West, Union Square Park, Manhattan.  The garden is located approximately half way along the western side of Union Square Park. Access to the garden is from within the park.

Guide:  Judith Van Bers, Seed collector, Greenbelt Native Plant Center, NYC

Description:  Explore how the shapes and colors of flowering plants are related to the pollinators they attract and how maintenance of a vibrant and diverse ecosystem includes keeping ‘pests’ as well as butterflies.  After all, a world without ‘pests’ would also be a world without chocolate.  The walk should help participants create an insect-friendly sustainable garden. We will see native flowers and a variety of bees, butterflies, flies and beetles.  In addition, there will be a small collection of insects typical of this region to look at.
