  • Creating Backyard Habitat

    Creating Backyard Habitat  

    Pollinators are some of the most important animals on the planet. A vast majority of plants need them to reproduce, they are critical members of the food web, and human agriculture and economies lean on them heavily. Alarmingly, global pollinator populations are plummeting, due largely to our sterile modern landscape. The good news is that anyone with a backyard can help provide habitat for these wonderful, essential insects!  

    Ryan Davis, Pennsylvania Forests Program Manager for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, will discuss native pollinators in detail, from their biology to specific ways you can improve your property to give these "good bugs" a home!

    This program is free and open to the public.  Please register by contacting the Manada Conservancy office at office@manada.org or 717-566-4122.
