On Sunday, June 24th, at 1:00 p.m., Geauga County Master Gardener Volunteer Chris Pappas will present “Helping Pollinators in Your Garden.” Pappas, a local veterinarian, has taken Pollinator Specialty training through The Ohio State University and serves as an ambassador for Certified Wildlife Friendly Habitats with the National Wildlife Foundation.
