STOCKTON SPRINGS — Have you ever wondered why native plants and insects are so important?
Join Coastal Mountains Land Trust for a talk, Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 6:30 p.m., at the Stockton Springs Community Library to learn why.
Dr. Roger Rittmaster, Maine Master Naturalist, avid nature photographer, and Coastal Mountains Land Trust board member, will stimulate your thinking about the natural environment in his presentation on the complex web weaved by the inhabitants of the woods and fields.
Each opportunity to invite and sustain pollinators is critical as open space becomes more limited in urban environments, according to the Land Trust. Ensuring that what is planted is native, inviting, and nourishing to a wide range of insects and butterflies is important.
This presentation will give you the information you need and help you identify what you see when you go hiking or visiting open spaces.
Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust manages more than 12,000 acres and maintains 45 miles of permanent trails for public access.
