The Rock County Conservationists are hosting a free public program on pollinators from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 3, in the community room of Basics Food Co-op, 1711 Lodge Drive.

The program will start with a short ceremony of awards and recognition for the nine teachers from Rock County schools who have created and maintained pollinator gardens on their school sites sponsored by grants from the Rock County Conservationists.

After the ceremony, Emily and Larry Scheunemann will present “Creating habitats for pollinators.”

The program will focus on the best plants for attracting pollinators and describe ways to provide water and shelter for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators.
