"Bees, Trees, and Clean Water" Workshop Will Be Held March 26

Machipongo seminar to highlight native plants, pollinators, the Bay

(MACHIPONGO, VA)—The public is invited to learn how native plants can enhance the beauty of yards and gardens, attract beneficial birds and insects, and improve the health of local creeks and the Chesapeake Bay. The free morning workshop will be held on Saturday, March 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Barrier Islands Center, 7295 Young Street in Machipongo.

The workshop, titled "Bees, Trees, and Clean Water," is co-sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Barrier Islands Center.
