Deadly. Powerful. Beautiful. The much-hated plant called poison ivy is all of these things and more. Find out more about the many roles of poison ivy in both human and natural history with author, Anita Sanchez. Book signing to follow.
Look closely at a flower, and inevitably you will find visitors dropping by. Bees, hummingbirds, moths, butterflies, and many other creatures alight upon the fragile blooms, and as they do so they perform the essential work of pollination. Yet our pollinators are in dire straits, and as the pollinators fair so fairs our ecosystem. What are the threats to these industrious creatures, and how can we work to build a world that supports our pollinators and ourselves?
