Blossom Garden Club Visited NC Botanical Garden
The Blossoms Garden Club visited the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.
Under the leadership of NCBG Assistant Director for Natural Areas and Conservation Programs, Johnny Randall,
the Blossoms learned about plant pollinators which include not just bees, but moths, dragonflies,
butterflies, beetles, ants, wasps and flies. In the bog garden, Johnny Randall demonstrated how a bee or fly enters a pitcher plant.
To learn more about plant pollinators, check out the following: www.xerces.org and www.pollinator.org.
