Learn more about the relationship between pollinators, their food and larva plant preferences in this FREE workshop

About this event

Pollinators – moths, wasps, bees and butterflies, to name a few – are incredibly important to our ecosystem. In fact, many of them are keystone species and without them, that system would be drastically different or cease to exist altogether.

Our pollinators are facing a lot of challenges and they need all our help. Many important pollinators, like the Karner blue butterfly, the rusty patched bumblebee and the monarch butterfly, are facing extinction due to habitat destruction, climate change, pollution and pesticide use. Building and maintaining habitat can help keep these important species from going extinct.

We all know what the monarch caterpillar eats....milkweed, but what about other native moths and butterflies?

Join Carolyn Miller, botanical technologist at MSU’s W.J. Beal Botanical Garden, for the opportunity to learn more about the relationship between pollinators, their food and larva plant preferences in this FREE workshop sponsored by the West MI Conservation Network. Learn more about the complex relationship between caterpillars and their food sources that has developed over thousands of years (because it is all about location, location, location.) Increase your understanding of what you can do to increase the diversity of pollinators in your garden space while making your garden a place where they can successfully build and maintain their habitat.
