Are you interested in attracting more pollinators to your garden? Mississippi Valley Conservancy will host Kaitlyn O’Connor in a free live webinar, “Gardening for Pollinators,” to share tips and techniques on how to create a garden that supports a variety of bees and butterflies. Participants will also learn more about what pollinators need to thrive, tips on plant selection, different ways to establish a new garden, and be inspired with lots of examples of pollinator gardens with native plants. A question and answer session will be hosted after the presentation.
Kaitlyn O’Connor is the education and outreach specialist at Prairie Moon Nursery, a Minnesota business that provides over 700 species of North American native plants for gardening and restoration. In her role she travels throughout the Midwest inspiring gardeners to be a part of the collective effort to nurture and sustain the living landscape. Ms. O’Connor also works for University of Wisconsin Extension in Jackson and Trempealeau Counties. She was born and raised in Southeastern Minnesota, graduated from Winona State University, and currently lives on a homestead in rural Winona.
