Virtual Garden Tour

Amy Yarger, Butterfly Pavilion, “The Urban Prairies Project: Habitats for People & Pollinators”

Urban open spaces perform vital ecosystem services, support wildlife habitat and connect people to the natural world…but many of them face substantial challenges. In this virtual tour, Amy will demonstrate how mobilizing community stewards can make a difference for native plants and the creatures (including us) that rely upon them.

Amy Yarger received a bachelor’s degree in ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California, Irvine and then went on to study plant-animal interactions at the University of Michigan.  Her work at Butterfly Pavilion, where she has worked since 2000, touches on many of her passions: plants, insects, habitat conservation  and science education.

This will be a virtual session on Zoom. You will receive the link a couple of days before the event.
