Around Pollinators – Kids tours & workshops
- On Saturday, October 8. Tours will begin at 10 am, 11.15 am, and 12.45 pm.
- Led by William H. Sullivan, Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning Student at the University of Maryland College Park, each tour will take around 30 minutes and will be followed by a brief workshop on planting and seeds.
Around Pollinators raises a reflection on the fundamental role of native biotopes in generating resilience in the face of the serious threat of climate change. With this purpose in mind, Lucía Loren proposes the creation of a garden of native plants that seeks to attract and feed local populations of fauna, improving their habitats, air quality and biodiversity. The selection of these native plants has been made based on the three zones in the region: coastal, piedmont and mountain, with the collaboration of William H. Sullivan, Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning Student at the University of Maryland College Park.
