Calling all Birds and Bees

"In the spring, a young man's fancy, turns to thoughts of..... Birds and Bees?  Ah yes, but how to attract them?  Now is the time to consider planting native species of plants.
The March 4 program of the Sierra Club is on Birds, Bees and Butterflies: Using Native Plants to Attract Pollinators to Your Gardens. Presenters are Alice Counts, owner of Bluebird Lane Wildflowers near Willard and former director of conservation education at Dickerson Park Zoo, and Myra Scroggs, Greater Ozarks Audubon Society president and retired biology teacher. Both Counts and Scroggs have years of experience in native plants and wildflowers.
The program will feature native Missouri wildflower images by Kay Johnson and information on growing native wildflowers in home gardens. Counts will focus on perennials that attract add color to gardens and also attract pollinators.
The program starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center.  Come early for refreshments and networking at 6 p.m.
