Alarmingly, pollinator populations across the state are plummeting. To combat this trend, the Oneida County Land and Water Conservation Department (LWCD) is hosting a Native Flower Transplanting Party from 9 to 11 a.m. at the courthouse garden on Baird Avenue, Thursday July 25.
What are the plants for? LWCD and the AIS (aquatic invasive species) Team have been working on several habitat restoration projects throughout the county, from AIS-affected sites to roadside pollinator habitat. To build rich populations of native plants for these sites, local native seeds are collected and sowed. These seedlings are now ready to transplant in individual pots to grow stronger before they are planted in the wild.
Join LWCD staff Baerbel Ehrig and Stephanie Boismenue to help “Bee the Change” and take home a complimentary native wildflower.
