Bees, beetles and butterflies, oh my! Pollinators are the animal life that sustains us! Although we may rarely notice these insects visiting flowers, more than 85% of all plant species on earth need pollinators to survive. Bees alone pollinate over $200 billion in crops every year, including about one-third of the food that we eat!
Join KCD and Washington State University Master Gardeners at the Tukwila Library on May 24, from 6:30 to 8 PM, for “Bring Bees and Butterflies to your Garden.” Participants will learn more about native pollinators and how to identify their garden visitors.
