Learn about pollinator-friendly lawns at Sept. 24 webinar

COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri Extension offers a session on pollinator-friendly lawns 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24.

MU Extension horticulturist Tamra Reall says the one-hour webinar tells how lawn owners can have it all – pollinators and beautiful lawns.

“Studies show that pollinator populations are in decline because of a loss of feeding and nesting habitats, pollution and misuse of pesticides,” she says.

Michelle Wisdom from the University of Arkansas Department of Horticulture will tell how to plant attractive, low-growing plants, including bulbs, for blooms in lawns on a year-round basis. “These plants can even increase the health of your turf,” Reall says.

Wisdom, author of “Systems to Attract and Feed Pollinators in Warm-Season Lawns,” owns a native plant and pollinator business in addition to her position with the university.
