The next Pollinator Pathway Project Living Classroom Presentation will be a talk by Amanda Bayley at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 7, 2019, at the Irvington Public Library, 12 South Astor Street. Here is a description of the talk:
As the next event in our “Living Classroom Series,” the Pollinator Pathway Project is presenting a talk about – as summer fades away and fall begins – how you can manage your garden and lawn to benefit pollinators and the broader environment of our community.
On Monday, October 7, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., Amanda Bayley will speak at the Irvington Public Library, 12 South Astor Street, Irvington, about what you can and should do with the advent of fall to both benefit and protect pollinators as they prepare for the winter and improve the overall health and well-being of your property. Amanda will discuss what are the practices one can follow with respect to garden clean up, leaf collection and mulching, and planting of new plants to improve the health of your yard and protect and benefit the many animals and plants that quietly go to ground over the winter. This will be a very timely talk, especially as the Village seeks to renew awareness and support for the “Love ‘em and Leave ‘em” initiative throughout the community. https://www.irvingtonny.gov/228/Your-Leaves-Love-Em-Leave-Em
