BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji Lawns to Legumes group will hold a residents workshop from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tue, Feb. 18, in the community room at Beltrami Electric, 4111 Technology Drive NW.

The workshop is designed for residents who want to incorporate native plants into their own yard, a release said. Attendees are asked to come with a map of their property. They will learn which native plants will attract pollinators to the yard, and how to create a ‘native pocket planting’, rain garden, or pollinator lawn.

The event is free and a light snack will be provided. Register on Eventbrite at

This workshop is provided by Blue Thumb in partnership with Bird, Bees and Butterflies and the MN Board of Water and Soil Resources.
