KETCHUM — Celebrate the equinox at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. A free talk will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Sept. 21, by Idaho Department of Fish and Game Regional Wildlife Biologist Ross Winton, a trained entomologist in the Wildlife Diversity Program, will explore the many connections between native pollinating insects and native plants. He will discuss unique central Idaho species that live nowhere else in the world and have unique relationships with native plants. Winton will also offer good sources for pollinator-friendly native plants and seeds.
The garden is at 11 Gimlet Road, four miles south of Ketchum.
Participants will explore the Sawtooth Botanical Garden on foot while learning to identify native bumble bees and solitary bees, and might even see a monarch butterfly.
