Native Plants Need Native Pollinators

Native Pollinators Need Native Plants

Presented by Beverly Paulan

Thursday, June 30th at 6:00pm in the McIntosh Memorial Library Lobby.

Description:

Pollinators are the foundation of our world—from ensuring beautiful flowers to guaranteeing delicious fruits, vegetables and even coffee and chocolate. Our native plants have evolved with our insects and both need one another to survive. I’ll talk about how and why insects are disappearing and what we all can do to help ensure their survival.

Bio:

Beverly Paulan has been an educator, a pilot, a birder, a toad wrangler, a crane mama and a butterfly whisperer: and these are just the things she has gotten paid to do! After getting a degree in Biology and her pilot’s license, she chased her dreams and combined the two by working for such diverse organizations as the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Operation Migration. Currently she is “officially” retired, but still flies as a free-lance contract pilot and conducts endangered butterfly, habitat and bat surveys as a citizen scientist.
