Pollinator Garden Planting
Volunteers are needed to assist Central Lake Ontario Conservation staff in the transformation of an ornamental perennial planting area into a pollinator garden for the Enniskillen Conservation Area’s Education Centre in Clarington. This event will take place on Saturday, June 11th from 9:00am until 11:00am. Activities will include perennial removal, soil preparation, planting native perennials, mulching, bed edging and general gardening. We recommend gardening gloves, a good planting shovel and or a hand trowel. This event is offered to families, garden enthusiasts and conservation area visitors.
“On this day, we will be enhancing the grounds around our Education Centre to not only be beautiful, but provide a food source for various pollinators like butterflies, bees and birds,” says Jamie Davidson, Conservation Areas Planner with Central Lake Ontario Conservation. “Anyone thinking about adding native pollinator plants to their own gardens will get some great hands-on experience and learn about native plants. Pollinators pollinate over 90 percent of our flowering plants, including agricultural crops. Declining populations of pollinators poses a serious threat to future biodiversity and food production.”
If you are available for an hour or two please "Click Here" to register online or contact Mr. Jamie Davidson at the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Office (905) 579-0411 ext. 114.
