12:00-12:45 – ‘The Importance of Pollinators’ at the Douglas Library

You hear a lot these days about the critical role pollinators play in our landscape. Listen to a local beekeeper talk first hand about the importance of bees and how we can help them in our own backyards.

Put your pollinator knowledge to good use! Join us to create a small garden at Town Hall with Holly Habicht and plant flowers that will not only beautify our town, but help our butterfly and bee populations.

People say think globally, act locally. Well, if you think globally, it is overwhelming and you do not have enough energy left to act locally. Just act locally and see what a difference you can make!
