[ARCHIVED] Pollinator Pathway Project -- Living Classroom Series

As the next event in our “Living Classroom Series”, the Rivertowns Pollinator Pathway Project is presenting “Rebirth of a Woodlot”, a talk about transforming an overgrown, invasive-clogged 2-acre plot into a woodland paradise.  On Wednesday, April 7, 2021, Nancy Murray will do a ZOOM Presentation describing her recent project in the Rivertowns to merge a neglected, overgrown parcel into an existing property, design a place for people to connect with nature, and create a diverse and healthy environment for wildlife.  This project incorporated a large number of native trees, shrubs and plants, making it a rich and diverse environment for pollinators.

 After spending 25 years working in the corporate world, Nancy Murray left it behind to tend to her woodland gardens in the Catskills and develop a garden design business.  She attended Cornell’s Cooperative Extension Master Gardner course and the Cornell Master Forest Owner program and, for the last fifteen years, has applied that knowledge to design and develop a wide range of gardens.  After becoming a beekeeper in 2015 and learning about the importance of nectar and pollen, she became an activist for all pollinators.

 Because we are doing this as a ZOOM Presentation, we need to have folks pre-register for this event using this link:
