Prairie Pollinators Workshop January 12 in Osseo

Submitted by Editor on January 1, 2019 – 6:45 pm | Print or Email »No Comment

As we think about this year’s priorities for our Boyd Park prairie consider joining us as we car pool to this educational event. Our prairie is far more than attractive flowers and grasses. It is an entire ecosystem replete with zillions of ways plants and insects and other organisms have learned to pollinate over the past 140 million years. For example, rather than see the Black Locust trees as expendable because they are constantly encroaching on our prairie, see this Locust as a valuable source of pollinator energy because it is one of the earliest to flower and offer food to early pollinators. In later January we will have a meeting to plan our maintenance and improvement of our prairie.
