Earth Day and Stewardship Virginia: Pollinator Homesteads
Date: 04/22/2017
Time: 9:30 a.m.   To  2:00 p.m.
Location: Blockhouse parking lot
Description: As we cover more and more of the earth’s surface with buildings, roads, airports, and crops, it becomes vitally important to provide living quarters for the insects that serve us. These insects work hard to help pollinate plants for us to enjoy. Spend time giving back to the earth and critters by creating nifty recycled homesteads. These structures will be made out of natural material, recycled pallets/wood, and old bricks laying around. Help park guides create such homes throughout the Birding and Wildlife Trail. These structures will be displayed for the public to see and learn about pollinator homes. Those that participate in this program will receive a certificate signed by the governor of Virginia. This is a free program. Dress for the weather and to get dirty. Call or email to sign-up Megan.krager@dcr.virginia.gov or (276) 940-1643. Lunch will be provided.
Extra Event Fee: No
