Attract pollinators to your landscape

When was the last time you went to camp? Now’s the time to sign up for Camp Florida-friendly classes, a fun interactive camp for adults. The camp is for 3 days and you can sign up to attend one, two or all three classes. Classes start at 9:30 am and go until 2:00 pm. There is a $10 fee to attend each day of camp.

Here is a list of topics and fun activities we are covering during the three days of camp.

  • Monday, June 25 – Florida Friendly This and That featuring how to propagate your own plants with hands-on activities, composting 101, and success with container gardening and more.
  • Wednesday, June 27 – Focus on Wildlife & Their Habitat featuring pollinators, bats, bees, birds, butterflies and hummers. Plus stomp your feet, not the snakes.
  • Friday, June 29 – What’s Growing in Your Yard? You tell me quiz, match.com for trees, add color in the landscape, and create your own garden journal.

Classes will be held at the Duval County Extension Office at 1010 N McDuff Ave., Jacksonville FL. Bring a brown bag lunch for yourself to munch on during the break. Light snacks and drinks will be provided. There is a $10 fee to attend each day and you must preregister and prepay by June 18 to attend.
