Butterflies, bumblebees, moths and other creatures help pollinate over 75% of our flowering plants and crops, contributing to over $29 billion in crops each year. Currently many species of pollinators are struggling to survive. Join Blaine Rothauser of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation on a photogenic tour of the world of pollinators in New Jersey, exploring why pollinators are crucial to our environment, health, food systems and economy. Learn how to help the declining species of New Jersey pollinators with simple steps we can take to protect them in our own backyard.

No-Fuss Wildlife Pond
Frogs, toads, and dragonflies all need freshwater ponds for egg laying to create future generations. Even a tiny pond will attract and support them.
Learn what a true wildlife pond is and how simple it is to create - with no need for running water, filters, fish, and all the fuss. Pat Sutton, long-time wildlife gardener, will share the basics of how to create a wildlife pond and, even more importantly, how to maintain it so that wildlife benefits.
Pat Sutton has keenly studied the natural world for over 40 years (as the naturalist at the Cape May Point State Park in the 1970s and 1980s and for 21 years, until 2007, as the naturalist and program director at the Cape May Bird Observatory). Pat has an undergraduate degree in Literature and a Masters Degree in Environmental Education. She and her husband (Clay Sutton) wrote the landmark book, Birds and Birding at Cape May (2006), the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the Cape May area that they so love. Other books by Pat and Clay include How to Spot Butterflies (1999), How to Spot Hawks & Eagles (1996), and How to Spot an Owl (1994). Today Pat is a free-lance writer, naturalist, educator, lecturer, and wildlife habitat / conservation gardening champion. Her own wildlife garden is a teaching garden included on many tours and featured in programs and workshops she teaches.
