Visit the Pollinator Garden website.

Tours of N.C. Cooperative Extension’s Pollinator Paradise Demonstration Garden are led by Agriculture Extension Agent Debbie Roos.

The garden features over 225 species of perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, and grasses, and 85% of them are native to North Carolina. This is a great opportunity to visit the popular gathering spot for honey bees, native bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and beneficial insects in addition to their human admirers!

The tours take place rain or shine and will last an hour to an hour and a half depending on group size and interest.

There is no charge for the tour but registration is required to limit group size. Tours fill up fast so register early!
