Naturalist discusses pollinators

John RootRoot

Join the Friends of the Robbins Library for a fascinating virtual presentation by John Root, a knowledgeable naturalist and teacher.

This virtual event will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23. It is free and open to all, but registration is required on Eventbrite >>

Root plans to describe the essential roles played by pollinators and other beneficial organisms in our ecosystem and provide guidance on meeting their needs for food, cover and water.

A variety of plants that can nourish these organisms throughout their active lifetimes are discussed, and organic methods for establishing pollinator gardens are also presented.

Comments and questions are welcome throughout the program, and handouts with information about attracting beneficials will be offered to participants. 

Root is a certified organic land-care professional, and an organizer with Western Mass Pollinator Networks promoting the establishment of pollinator habitat on public and private lands. 

He also presents gardening and nature interpretation programs throughout New England at libraries, senior centers, long-term care centers and other venues, and leads walks seeking edible wild plants throughout Massachusetts.
