The annual Great Georgia Pollinator Census, sponsored by the University of Georgia, will be August 20 and 21. Created to bring more awareness to the importance of pollinators and their alarming decline, citizen scientists all over the state will be counting pollinating species of butterflies, bumblebees, small bees, carpenter bees, wasps, and flies on one plant for 15 minutes.
Cherokee Pollinator Garden, near the Rose Garden at Cherokee Lake Park in Thomasville, is a perfect place to participate in the annual census or at anytime enjoy the beautiful American native plants, butterflies, other pollinators and creatures.
The Friends of Lost Creek Forest will be sponsoring a small event at the Cherokee Pollinator Garden on Saturday, August 21 from 10am to 1pm. Visitors are welcome to just enjoy the garden and wildlife, with guides and handouts available. Native plants will be available for a donation for the garden, and, if visitors want to, they can participate in the statewide Pollinator Census.
If you would like to help set up for the event or assist visitors with their counts, please arrive to the Pollinator Garden at 9.
Don’t forget to tell them HOTC sent you!
