Event Description

"Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes" is a FREE educational program series sponsored by Rutgers Cooperative Extension, State Forestry Services & the NJ Forestry Association

This program will cover the relationship between insects and native plants and how we can best help the pollinator population with native plantings. You won't want to miss this presentation!
