About this Program
This interactive program will focus on the important role of meadow communities in supporting the important interconnections between native plants and native pollinators. This is a foundational relationship that affects beings all up and down the food chain, including us.

Native wildflowers, and their bees and butterflies, need our support. A meadow is more than a plant community; it's a communication hub among multiple species who work together to sustain ecosystem services, support life on earth, and have sustained humans for millennia. We will explore how these organisms interact with one another and the messages they use to sustain their relationships. This is a Kootenay Native Plant Society supported program.

About the Educator
I have been learning from plants all of my life. I am fascinated and delighted by their wonders as salient beings and their myriad interrelationships with humans through the centuries. I have worked with and share my passion with plants with kids of all ages through formal education networks and independent consulting and outreach. I have taught environmental education at the post-secondary level in western US and Canada and have a PhD in ethnobotany/ethnoecology (University of Victoria).
