POLLINATOR GARDEN AT CROFTON LIBRARY
Led by Project Chair Gail Schulz, members Margo Antonelli, Trish Demers, Rosa Johnson and Nancy Percivall and incoming members Laura Austin and Jessica Kruse weed the Pollinator Garden at Crofton Library.
The iris have started to bloom and the blue false indigo and peony are covered in buds. The garden has a variety of native plants that bloom from spring, throughout the summer, and into the fall, providing nectar and pollen essential for a flourishing pollinator population.
The Pollinator Garden is a "stepping stone" on the Anne Arundel County Pollinator Pathway.
NATIVE GARDEN AT CROFTON LIBRARY
Project Chair Don Pogue has been tending to the Native Garden located at Crofton Library. The garden is filling in nicely with native ferns, summersweet, and blue false indigo – just to name a few. The Native Garden creates a haven for pollinators like native bees and butterflies. It is also provides an abundance of seeds, berries, and habitat required for our native bird species.
When visiting the library, take a stroll through the Native Garden and enjoy the many native plants.
