Discover how the garden that beautifies your home can also nurture pollinators that help our ecology. The Ocean County Library Stafford Branch is pleased to present “Attracting Butterflies and Hummingbirds to Your Garden,” 10:30 AM Monday, June 12.
Sue Masoorli, a Rutgers Master Gardener of Ocean County for the past five years, specializes in butterflies, hummingbirds, and annual and perennial plants. She will explain how to create enticing spots for valuable pollinators, right in your yard.
The discussion will include life cycles, migration patterns, wintering habitats, food source plants for butterflies and hummingbirds, and environmental benefits.
Rutgers Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who present horticulture programs developed by the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) Cooperative Extension.
Bring your garden questions and plant or insect samples to Master Gardeners for diagnosis and recommendations in the OCL Stafford Branch, 10 AM to 12 PM on the second and fourth Monday of each month, through September.
