Pollinator program planned in Bedford


A program on pollinators and wildflowers will be presented at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Wilson Park Shelter House in Bedford.

The program is the seventh program in the Bedford Park outdoor series.

Evan Smith with the Natural Resources Conservation Service will discuss how you can start your own pollinator project.

This free program at the historic Wilson Park Shelter House will include what species of wildflowers are recommended and what pollinators you might expect to see in local gardens.

Smith will recommend when and where to plant your native flowers to maximize butterflies, moths and other pollinators. If you enjoy nature and doing your part to help encourage birds and butterflies, this program is for you.

The shelter house is heated, but watch the Bedford Park Department website or Facebook page if the weather is bad to check for cancellation. RSVP for the program at 812-275-5692 so there are enough handouts and chairs set up.

The outdoor series will continue March 26. That program, given by Richard Beckort with Purdue Extension Jackson County, will be about the care and maintenance of fruit trees.
