Spring is the time for blooming flowers and buzzing bees, so there is no better time to learn about some of our local pollinators!
Join herbalist and educator Lori Snyder for a program about local plants and their pollinators. Which plants might you see around your block that are great for supporting our pollinators? Who may be out pollinating right now and why are they important? How can you support these amazing little pollinators in what you do? You will learn the answers to all of these questions and more. You can ask your questions in real time, just like if we were together in person!
Among her many accomplishments and activities, Lori founded Earth Awareness Realized Through Health and Company to share First People’s perspectives and knowledge on wild, edible and medicinal plants, and since 2013, she has educated thousands of children and adults each year on local ecology. Lori is also currently working with the David Suzuki Foundation as a Butterfly Ranger and consulting with both the foundation and the YWCA at Evelyn Crabtree on native plants and their importance in our ecological relationship with other living beings.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
