The Seal Rock Garden Club is holding a free public program, “Planting for Pollinators,” beginning at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Kathy Cope, a member of the Oregon Beekeepers Association, will speak about pollinators and planting to attract them to one’s garden.
Cope says she has tried to be earth friendly most of her adult life, but it wasn't until she started to keep bees that she really became aware of pollinators, their contributions and the challenges they face. She has been a beekeeper for five years and has been fortunate to be mentored by fellow beekeepers and encouraged into taking a master beekeeping course. She is now in the journey program of master beekeepers and is a mentor herself. Through beekeeping, she has been brought closer to the natural world that she loves and toward sharing her knowledge with others when she can.
All are welcome to attend the presentation, which takes place at the garden club’s clubhouse, located at 10377 NW Rand Street in Seal Rock, next to the old Seal Rock Fire Department.
