Abbot Public Library and Sustainable Marblehead invite the community to attend a talk about the importance of native plants and pollinators and their connection to biodiversity. Speaker Peggy McLeod will explore community strategies for reversing the critical loss of biodiversity in order to create a more resilient future. MacLeod will describe how adopting a biodiversity mindset can provide four seasons of beauty, sustain a wide range of native wildlife habitats, offer greater hope for the future and lead to a deeper connection with nature. Learn about a movement across Massachusetts to build pollinator pathways that expand habitat using important native trees, shrubs and plants.
After a 30-year career promoting clean energy and green building, Peggy MacLeod co-founded Western Mass Pollinator Networks and more recently the Massachusetts Pollinator Network. She is passionate about stimulating community-wide collaboration to create nature-based solutions such as planting native trees, shrubs and flowers to form pollinator pathways.
