Come pitch in to do some fall planting in our community gardens! Native plants are important to us in so many ways, many of which we don’t realize. We will take a break from our other tasks to investigate ecological relationships by surveying which plant types attract the most pollinators and how insects are using leaves and/or flowers (eating leaves, drinking nectar, shelter, interactions). We will be meeting at Sweetbriar Nature Center located on Eckernkamp Drive in Smithtown.
