On Monday evening, the Metrowest Conservation Alliance Native Pollinator Task Force is holding a webinar for the public. The topic is “Assessing and Improving Your Landscape to Save Native Pollinator Species At Risk in Massachusetts”. The event will feature learnings from an initiative on Southborough conservation land. Southborough Open Space Preservation Commission is inviting the public to to zoom in.

The Southborough Open Space Preservation Commission (OSPC) invites you to attend the Metrowest Conservation Alliance Native Pollinator Task Force’s free webinar Assessing and Improving Your Landscape to Save Native Pollinator Species At Risk in Massachusetts Monday at 7pm, featuring the creation and success of pollinator habitat at Southborough’s Breakneck Hill Conservation Land

Since 2015 the OSPC has been collaborating with Dr. Robert Gegear, a professor of biology at UMASS Dartmouth to rebuild functionally diverse native ecosystems, across town, on conservation, public, and private land. A focus of our efforts has been to save pollinators in decline at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land in partnership with the Southborough Stewardship Committee and with support from the Conservation Commission.

The webinar will instruct on how to use Dr. Gegear’s Plant List for at-risk native pollinators:

Learn about the importance of providing multiple habitat needs for at-risk species, find what you already have growing in your space, and where to begin searching for these plants.
