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 arent sure exactly whats 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). Its 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.
