Columbia Land Conservancy Nature Night: Gardening for Pollinators, Apr 15

Can’t tell a milkweed from a monarda? Want to attract pollinators to your yard, but aren’t sure where to start? Join the Columbia Land Conservancy and Tim Kennelty to learn more about how to create pollinator habitat!

Pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths, flies and beetles provide an ecological service that is essential to the health of our environment. Yet with habitat loss, climate change, and the increase of invasive species, the threat to pollinators has never been greater. This talk will provide an introduction to the basics on pollinators, as well as the plants you can incorporate into your garden to support them.

Tim Kennelty is a Master Gardener and Master Naturalist volunteer through Cornell Cooperative Extension. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Columbia Land Conservancy. He has gardened in Columbia County for more than 30 years and has developed a passion for preserving native species and combating exotic invasive plants.  He has been involved in a multi-year habitat restoration project at the Siegel-Kline Kill public conservation area in Ghent, New York.

Screen Shot 2021-04-01 at 12.01.32 PM

Two Distant Strangers – Travon Free and Martin Desmond Roe (USA)
White Eye – Tomer Shushan and Shira Hochman (Israel)
The Letter Room – Elvira Lind and Sofia Sondervan (USA)

“What Neil Gaiman has written about short stories is certainly true of short narrative films, and here are five live-action films that are ‘tiny windows into other worlds, and other minds, and other dreams. They’re journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.’ These short films, three from the US, one from Israel, and one from Palestine, are each nominated for an Oscar and each will transport its viewers efficiently, dramatically, and powerfully into the lives of strangers, neighbors, and even family.” – Laurence Kardish, FilmColumbia co-artistic director and former senior film curator at MoMA
