The Power of Pollinators Presentation by Dr James Coupland

The Power of Pollinators, by Dr. James Coupland--a presentation sponsored by
the Almonte and District Horticultural Society and the Mississippi Mills Beautification Committee on Wednesday, May 10 at 7:00 pm upstairs at the Almonte Old Town Hall. This event is open to the general public and is free of charge. We encourage residents of Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place and surrounding areas to participate in this educational opportunity.  A strong advocate of pollination, conservation and the value of ecosystems, he’ll talk about the importance of pollinators and their decline. Pollinators, which are critical to plant reproduction, are “a huge part” of the value of nature, he says. And even individual gardeners can have a big impact in solving the problem of habitat loss and the effect of insecticides.

Canada's Garden Route--Feature

Canada's Garden Route Feature--2017 marks Canada's 150th Birthday.  To celebrate many Canadians are taking the "Great Canadian Road Trip".  If you travel to another province or stay right at home, there are many spectacular gardens you can visit.  Canada's Garden Route has been developed to help you find a garden wherever your travels take you.

This Sidebar Feature  (on your right) is a tribute to Canada's 150th birthday celebration and a promotion of Canada's Garden Route, drawing extensively from the material on the Canada's Garden Route website. The goal is to present the material as a cross country tour, and supplements "Featured Garden" destinations on Canada's Garden Route with additional images and videos for individual destinations. This feature attempts to be impartial, in every way, limited only by the available material.

Sidebar Features are specifically designed for viewing in the popup window opened when clicking the Sidebar Feature label or image on the Lanark County Master Gardeners blog. Other viewing options will result in distorted or fuzzy results.


Please note that there is a built-in navigation capability. It is triggered using the leftmost button (just before the backward/forward buttons). After clicking the appropriate button you can navigate to a specific province and to a specific Featured Garden within a given province. This is particularly useful if you get interrupted while viewing the entire Sidebar Feature or have a vacation planned in a specific province.
