Learn how to make your yard attractive to pollinators at the March 22 Cincinnati Zoo Sustainable Landscape Symposium.

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will present its Sustainable Urban Landscape Symposium on March 22. This year’s symposium is almost entirely focused on landscaping and gardening for pollinating insects.

Pollinators are the very foundation of a healthy landscape ecosystem, serving both to control pest insects and to pollinate plants to support food producing plants for both wildlife and humans.

Here to give us a preview of this year's Sustainable Urban Landscape Symposium are Pollinator Program Co-Director with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, Mace Vaughn; and Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden horticulturist Scott Beuerlein, who is also chair of the Taking Rootcampaign.

The Cincinnati Zoo's Sustainable Urban Landscape Symposium takes place March 22. For more information and tickets, click here.
