Native plant expert Mark Charles of Wild Ones was our guest speaker at the April 12 club meeting. He has been growing native plants in his Ann Arbor yard since 1995. He has organized pollinator events for children, and helped with schoolyard butterfly gardens. He is a volunteer park steward for the City of Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation.
Mark generously provided us with some handouts on planting for pollinators; download them below. Visit the Wild Ones website for more helpful info: http://www.wildones.org/.
Our annual members-only equipment build on April 9 was a huge success! Thank you so much to Dick Dyer for hosting, to Keith Lazar of Buggs Nest for providing woodenware for purchase, and to everyone who participated. Programs like this are a benefit of club membership; learn more here.
