The Great Georgia Pollinator Podcast is a companion to the Great Georgia Pollinator Census. We explore insect habitat, sustainable pollinator gardening, insect identification and research centered on pollinator conservation.
Dr. Elizabeth McCarty, a Forest Health Specialist from University of Georgia's Tifton campus, joins us to talk about adding trees to your landscape to benefit pollinators. Dr. McCarty gives us some recommendations just in time for Arbor Day. For more information on choosing trees and shrubs for your landscape see "Selecting Trees and Shrubs for Pollinators."
