Place: Illahe Vineyards

Join the LWC and Aaron Anderson for a look at how Illahe is using strips of native wildflowers between rows of grape vines to contribute to pollinator health in its vineyards. As we tour the vineyard, Aaron will be using a net to get a snapshot of the pollinators that are visiting the wildflowers, and you'll also get some pollinator-friendly landscaping tips for your own property. Space is limited, so register today!
