The University of Illinois Extension in partnership with Conservation@Home and Forest Preserves of Cook County, is hosting a webinar on Illinois native pollinators from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, on Zoom.

Plan now for the pollinators! When it comes to pollination, honeybees get a majority of the attention. However, many insects play a role in pollination.


This presentation will discuss different native pollinators, including beetles and flies, and tips on how to make your landscape attractive to them, including providing habitat.
