The Ecolab project on Ohio State’s Mansfield campus hosts its Power of Pollinators Open House from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 1760 University Drive. Admission is free and includes snacks, plants and seed packets.
Populations of pollinators — bees, butterflies and others — have seen significant drops in recent years, and the event will look at ways to help them. Talks will cover “Native Bees in Your Backyard,” “Pollinators Need Woodlands, Too!” and “Native Plant ID and Seed Collection.”
Participants should meet at the Monarch Right-of-Way demonstration plots in front of Ovalwood Hall.
For details, call CFAES wildlife program specialist Marne Titchenell, one of the event’s speakers, at 614-292-0402.
