Learn to protect pollinators during Endangered Species Day

| May 18, 2023 12:00 AM

Make a pollinator seed ball and learn about Monarch butterflies during Endangered Species Day, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. May 18 at Mission Mountain View Point, south of Ronan.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn more about the importance of wildflowers to many native pollinators that are close to being listed under the Endangered Species Act. They can also help plant some native pollinator species and learn how to use herbicides safely when pollinators are out and about.

A wildlife biologist will be on hand from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes to share information on other local endangered species on the Flathead Indian Reservation. Planting stations and booths promise ample opportunities for hands-on learning.
