Christmas Birdhouse Class
Nov 16 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Pollination is a fascinating phenomenon and essential ecological function. Without pollinators, Earth’s ecosystems wouldn’t survive. Over 80% of flowering plants require a pollinator to reproduce. Pollinators that assist plants in reproduction include bats, butterflies, moths, birds, bees, and more. Learn about pollination and bring home a Butterfly/Bee House or a Bat House. Instructor Joe Garant of NEMROC and the Pollinator Brigade teach this hands-on workshop in which participants build bee and butterfly houses that will make a significant, positive change in the environmental quality of our property and community. Participants will have the choice to decorate their houses with seasonal touches for Christmas, making these a wonderful gift! Cost is $22. Contact 989-358-7271 to register.
