Pollinator Friendly Neighborhoods

With Your City’s Blessing and Help

Join us for an educational webinar with Mid America Regional Council; Robert Whitman, Landscape Architect with Gould Evans; and Luke Chesek, Attorney, and Native Plant Advocate.

These experts will cover the most effective ways to convince your city and elected officials to adopt new ordinances that promote pollinator-friendly lawns and greenspaces. Learn how native plants affect stormwater run-off, pollution and bring critical habitat back to our neighborhoods. Don’t miss it!

Timely, factual webinars are an ongoing educational effort of Deep Roots KC and our partners.
