Would You Mind Pollinating Me?

The honeybees are vanishing. You know it, I know it, and, clearly, the honeybees have a hunch that something odd is going on (“Hey, has anyone seen Vinny? I swear he was just here…”). While we aren’t sure exactly what’s causing the pollinator genocide – be it build-up of pesticides and other toxins or our scrambling of their sonic receptors with satellite and cell phone frequencies? – we do know how to attract them in our yards. Learn how to use what you plant to make your home a haven for assorted things that fly and lumber today when Dr. Bill Kern lectures on Landscaping for Wildlife and Pollinators from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Secret Woods Nature Center (2701 W. State Rd. 84, Dania Beach). It’s the best of part of symbiosis: You get to watch animals, bees, birds, and butterflies use your yard as a playground, and they in turn will see to it that seeds are scattered and delivered to all of your desired vegetations, making your garden bloom brilliantly.
