Bees, Butterflies and Other Pollinators

June 26, 2016 - June 27, 2016

Over the last 5 years the staff at Lake James State Park has diligently landscaped with native plants that are attractive to insect pollinators. Those efforts are paying off and the pollinator gardens around the day-use portion of the Paddy’s Creek Area are a showplace for butterflies, bees and a host of other insects that are critical to the health of our flowering and fruiting plant communities. Park Ranger Jamie Cameron will lead this tour of the gardens – discussing the different plants and how they are utilized by the insect community. Meet at the Paddy’s Creek Area bathhouse breezeway at 2 p.m.
