April 25:  Pollinator Gardens to Attract Bees, Hummers and Butterflies  ... Lynda Nelson, a passionate educator of northern Nevadans for years on all things related to plants, will discuss the importance of having pollinator plants in your garden to provide a habitat for bees, hummers and butterflies to frequent, what plants comprise a typical pollinator garden and how to care for them.  In addition, Lynda will share the latest research on the declining bee population which is actually making a comeback.   For the last 15 minutes of the seminar, she will guide you through the garden center to see plants mentioned in her seminar.
