Habitat loss is the number one factor leading to decreased pollinator populations. As we build more homes, schools and businesses here in Currituck, we have a duty to protect our pollinators. One way to do this is by establishing wildflower beds. Wildflower beds can be small, but offer habitat to pollinators.

Join us at N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco, on June 10 from 10 a.m. to noon for our Establishing a Wildflower Bed class. We’ll cover everything you need to know about wildflowers, from how to get them started, to how to keep them maintained and prevent them from looking like a weedy mess! The class fee of $10 covers wildflower seeds to start your very own bed.
