Carter Center Pollinator Garden Planting with Mr. Alex from Trees Atlanta

Attention plant and pollinator lovers: Please join us June 21st, 2014, from 9:00 am-noon to installing and a native pollinator garden at The Carter Center. This is a fantastic opportunity not only give back to President Carter, but to assist our pollinator friends by providing them food and habitat within our urban forest. Trees Atlanta has been working with your students and they would be a great asset at the planting.

Partners in this effort include The Carter Center’s landscape volunteers, Professor Jaap de Roode, an expert on monarch butterflies from Emory University’s biology department, and his research undergraduate and graduate students, and K-12 students participating in Trees Atlanta’s education program. You are encouraged to bring your children to join in on this planting as it’s sure to be highly educational and a great time.

To sign up please email Alex@treesatlanta.org with names and ages of students who are going to attend the planting. Please one adult to every 4 students. Don’t forget to wear your close toed shoes, clothing that can get dirty and bring some water.
