The North Carolina Arboretum was recently certified as the state’s first Bee Campus USA, one of only seven such facilities in the nation. As a component of its certification requirements, the arboretum will focus its 2016 Seasonal Landscape Exhibits program on plants and nesting sites for pollinator species. Beyond its seasonal plantings, the arboretum hosts several pollinator-related events throughout the year.
Seating for the June 21 speaking engagements is limited, and attendees (including current Arboretum members) are encouraged to pre-register for free tickets for each presentation at beecityusa.org/2016. Nonmembers who have not preregistered will be charged $12 for parking. A suggested donation of $5 is requested.
