Jones Library Zoom event – March 4, 2021

Attracting Birds, Butterflies, Bees, and Other Beneficials  

Amherst, MA – As we begin to think about planning our gardens this year, it’s a good time to consider the benefits of adding plants that attract birds, butterflies, and bees.   Learn how to do just that by joining us for Attracting Birds, Butterflies, Bees, and Other Beneficials, a webinar to be hosted by the Jones Library via Zoom on Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 7:00 pm.  

This webinar, a power point presentation offered by naturalist and landscaper John Root, describes the essential roles played by birds, pollinators, and other beneficial wildlife and provides guidance on meeting their needs for food, cover, and water. A variety of plants that nourish these organisms throughout their lifecycles is discussed, and organic methods for establishing wildlife habitat are also presented. Handouts will be available for downloading, and comments and questions will be welcome at the conclusion of the program. A recording of this event will be scheduled for multiple broadcasts by Amherst Media and will be made accessible at their website via YouTube.  

For more information on the program and how to join us via Zoom, please visit or contact Janet Ryan at  The Zoom event can also be accessed directly on March 4th at  

This program is made possible by the Friends of the Jones Libraries.  This program is also supported in part by the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
