Many plants and animals have co-evolved over millennia to form the Eastern Deciduous Forest and associated communities that most of us live in the midst of. Native pollinators, in turn, are vital to the future sustainability of our native plants. Join Alonso Abugattas, Naturalist with Arlington County, Virginia and butterfly expert, for a fascinating and lively presentation on our native pollinators, including a wide diversity of native butterflies, bees, and others such as flies, moths, and hummingbirds. Alonso will also discuss ways of attracting pollinators to one's garden and some of the important native plants for pollinators.
