Pollinators and their plant relationships – April 18
We all know that plants rely on insects to pollinate plants, but have you ever thought about how varied and complex those plant-insect interactions are? On Wednesday, April 18, Cheryl LeBlanc will give a presentation on various plant characteristics and their pollinators – with a special emphasis on orchids and native plants – and explain why these relationships are important in all ecosystems around the world.
Cheryl is Curator and Ecologist at the Wheeler-Thanhauser Orchid Collection and Species Bank at Ball State. Her focus there is nature education and plant ecology, and she is also an artist and biological illustrator.
Chapter business and refreshments will begin at 7 p.m. at Kennedy Library, followed by Cheryl’s program at 7:15. As always, Audubon programs are free of charge and open to the public.
