All of us at GKC-AAZK are pumped about pollinators!  We had a fantastic presentation in August about "Bee-ing the Solution" and we're gearing up for a native seed sale fundraiser this fall! 

Are you as pumped as us?!  Grow Native! has a website that is full of resources on native plants that will attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, beautify your lawn, help clean our air, and cut down on yardwork!

New Meeting Schedule

Posted by AAZK on March 27, 2017 at 12:20 PM Comments comments (0)

The GKC-AAZK chapter voted to try a set meeting schedule for 2017.  We will meet the first Wednesday of each month, and will alternate between two formats:  a working meeting, and a reporting meeting with a speaker or activity.  April will be our first meeting in this format and will be a working meeting.  Which means that May will feature a report followed by a speaker/activity.  We hope to see you there!
