Seventy neighbors attended Thursday’s P3 Educational Forum to learn about native plants, native bees, and started their journey to build our pathway through Lyndale, Kingfield, and Tangletown neighborhoods for the Rusty Patch Bumble Bee, a native bee whose habitat has been severely diminished and is on the Endangered Species list.
Thanks to wonderful our super wise speakers, including U of M Extension Educator and Horticulturist, and a master trainer of the Hennepin County Master Gardeners’ herself, Julie Weisenhorn, for taking the time to share her expertise with us. Also thanks to our many local, trained and talented Master Gardeners from our three neighbors who are sharing their time and expertise throughout this project. In the spirit of we all do better when we all share a common understanding, a video of the presentation ands link to the slide show will be available soon!
Funding for the project has been provided by the the MN Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) through a grant from the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources and the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund (LCCMR and the ENTRF), and the three community-based Neighborhood Associations of Lyndale, Kingfield, and Tangletown.
