To celebrate, the East Quabbin Land Trust will be hosting some fascinating pollinator events, as well as working with students from Quabbin Regional High School who will be doing a pollinator study and enhancing pollinator habitat on school grounds.

We are looking for donations to make these events successful. The list of items needed includes: plants that attract pollinators (see list below); hollow bamboo for bee houses; shallow plant saucers at least 16″ wide, coarse sand and clay pots for butterfly puddles.
