Biologist to Talk About Pollination

BAR HARBOR — Lean how birds and bees (and bugs, bats and wind) pollinate various plants, and about the amazing mechanisms that make it all possible.

For every apple, orange, cucumber or tomato that’s been eaten, there was a pollinator at work to get that fruit growing.


Every flowering plant, whether wild or cultivated, that successfully produces seeds must be pollinated.

Jill Weber – who is a consulting biologist at Acadia National Park, various land trusts and other organizations and is one of the people involved in creating the new book, “The Plants of Acadia National Park” – will address this topic at the Oct. 14 meeting of the Bar Harbor Garden Club at 1:30 p.m. at Birch Bay Village. Refreshments and business meeting to follow. Newcomers are welcome.
