Summertime is peak pollinator season as hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects are out in full force gathering pollen and nectar for their nests. California native plants in particular provide an excellent, high-nutrient source of food for not just the European honeybees but for our native birds and pollinators, too.
Join our tour in the California Native Plant Demonstration Garden and learn how to garden for pollinators with our resilient, drought-tolerant summer blooming natives that continue to bring beauty into the garden even during the hottest months of the year.
Special bonus - we'll have free baby pollinator plants to give away while supplies last! We might even have wildflower seeds for sale too! Just $1 per packet.
The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free street parking is available on surrounding streets, with limited parking within the cemetery. There is construction going on across the street from the cemetery, so add a few minutes to your travel time to find parking.
We'll meet at the information kiosk at the front entry and take a short walk to the garden. It might be pretty warm the day of the tour so be sure to wear a good sun hat. Ice water provided.
Tours are free; however, your tax-deductible donations are appreciated and benefit operations of the native garden.
