Edneyville Library Speaker Series: Beneficial Pollinators

June 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Date: June 4, 2024

Time: 10:00 a.m.

Location: Edneyville Library

Speaker: Steve Pettis, Henderson County Horticulture Agent

June is ‘Pollinator Month’. Join Steve Pettis, Henderson County Extension Agent for NC State University, to learn about pollinating insects and how to attract them to your yard! Pollinating insects such as native bees, wasps, beetles and flies are critical to native plant reproduction and to our food supply but these workhorses of the insect world are under threat from land use changes, pesticides and habitat loss. The great news is that you can make a difference by dedicating a part of your landscape to the plants that feed and shelter pollinators. Steve will teach you how to make your yard and garden a pollinator paradise!

Steve Pettis has spent his life studying plants and gardening.  As a child, he gardened with his grandmother dividing daylilies, irises and daffodils and collecting native plants in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Georgia.  Steve has been a tree farm and nursery manager, a research greenhouse manager, a consulting arborist, UGA Extension Agent in Rockdale and Gwinnett Counties, and is now a North Carolina Horticulture Agent in Henderson County.

*Space is limited and pre-registration is required by visiting the Edneyville Library’s calendar of events at this link. Registrations open at 10:00am Tuesday, May 7, 2024.

The Edneyville Library Speaker Series programs are made possible thanks to our partnership with the Henderson County Public Library.
