Pollinator Happy Hour Series

Gardeners and pollinator enthusiasts throughout the Adirondacks are invited to participate in an online series of Pollinator Happy Hours hosted by AdkAction’s Adirondack Pollinator Project this spring. The series aims to build knowledge, understanding, and awareness of pollinators and empower stewardship among participants.

Each Pollinator Happy Hour will begin with a discussion on the main topic with a featured guest, followed by an open forum for attendees to ask questions and share their experiences of creating and maintaining pollinator-friendly habitat. Although each session will focus on a different topic, all questions are welcome and anyone can attend. Prior to each Pollinator Happy Hour, we will share recipes for pollinator-themed beverages that participants can make to sip during the event.

Pollinator Happy Hours will take place the first Tuesday of each month this spring, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, on Zoom.

Sign up for our third and final session here:

June 1, 4:00-5:00: Planting your pollinator garden

We look forward to seeing you!

The Adirondack Pollinator Project is a project of AdkAction in collaboration with The Wild Center, Lake Placid Land Conservancy, and Paul Smith’s College.
