Subject: All this Month – Pollination Preservation Garden Tours, Join us!
Native Plant – Native Pollinator Preservation Month:
Celebrate with Pollination Preservation Garden Tours!
The MCA Native Pollinator Task Force (NPTF) invites you to participate in our first Native Plant-Pollinator Preservation Month for the MetroWest region. Throughout the month of June we will be hosting tours of our Public Display Pollination Preservation Gardens (PPG) for the MCA and NPTF.
This is not your typical Garden Tour but rather intended to showcase how NPTF Ambassadors and MCA members can work to create their own Public Display Pollination Preservation Gardens in their hometowns to help spread our pollination preservation efforts to all towns in the MCA region.
We have a variety of garden types for you to visit: a Private School in Lincoln, a Public Display Garden in Weston, a Pollination Preservation Garden at Sunny Meadow Farm in Chelmsford, and Southborough’s Beecology Research Garden at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land. Dr. Robert Gegear will be at our first event in Southborough on June 13th to discuss the values of Pollination Preservation and how you can help.

The Native Pollinator Task Force is a subcommittee of the Metrowest Conservation Alliance. Our mission is to conserve native pollination systems by providing the specific habitat requirements and reducing threats for at-risk pollinators in the 36 communities of the Metrowest Conservation Alliance.
The Metrowest Conservation Alliance is a collaboration of land trusts, local conservation commissions, and other groups that work together to improve the ecological health of the 36 communities around the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord Rivers.
