GRCA plans trees and bees workshop in Elmira for area landowners

ELMIRA - A free workshop is being held for landowners in the Woolwich area to learn more about how to protect and attract bees and other pollinators.

The Trees and Bees Workshop will be held at the Elmira Lions Club, 40 South St. W, Elmira from 7pm to 8:30pm on Oct. 26.

Pollinators are vital for their role in food production and maintaining healthy natural ecosystems. Fruits, nuts, oilseeds and many vegetables require the help of bees, butterflies, moths and other insects for pollination. Planting native trees and flowering plants is one way to promote local pollinator habitat.

The workshop is being offered by the Grand River Conservation Authority and will provide information on planting to attract pollinators, enhancing shoreline vegetation to protect aquatic species at risk and creating treed areas for wildlife habitat.

Landowners with properties greater than two hectares (five acres) may be eligible for funding for tree planting or wetland creation projects. Priority is given to areas directly adjacent to watercourses.

To register, email or call Karen Buschert at the GRCA at 1-866-900-4722 ext. 2305.
