Upcoming Virtual Class: Providing Winter Habitat for Butterflies and Native Bees

On Oct. 14 at 7:00 p.m. CT / 8:00 p.m. ET, I will be teaching a class on providing winter habitat for butterflies and native bees. Pollinator gardening information often focuses on providing lots of flowers for butterflies and bees to use during the growing season. Very little, if any, time is spent talking about what happens to those butterflies and bees in the winter. Too often, we take it for granted that they will just “magically” show up again in the spring. However, to really thrive on our properties, our butterflies and native bees need winter habitat as well as lots of flowers in the spring, summer, and fall. My upcoming class, will teach you how to provide that winter habitat.

The class will last approximately an hour with the potential for “bonus” time at the end for additional questions and more in-depth discussion. Registration is $10 and will be open until the morning of Oct. 13. More details, including how to register, are below and at https://shannontrimboli.com/shop/providing-winter-habitat-oct-2020/.

Please help me let others know about this class. If you have any questions, just let me know.

Have a great day!
Shannon Trimboli

Backyard Ecology: Creating Space for Pollinators and Wildlife
Nature isn’t just “out there.” It’s all around us, including right outside our doors. Hi, my name is Shannon Trimboli, and I am the host of Backyard Ecology. I live in southcentral Kentucky and am a wildlife biologist, educator, author, and owner of a nursery specializing in plants for pollinators and wildlife conservation. I started Backyard Ecology as a way to share my love of exploring nature and learning about different plants and animals. I invite you to join me as we ignite our curiosity and natural wonder, explore our yards and communities, and improve our local pollinator and wildlife habitat.
