PARK RAPIDS — Headwaters Center for Lifelong Learning will host the Nevis Women's Club's presentation, "Creating a Pollinator Highway," from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at Armory Arts and Events Center, 203 Park Ave. S in Park Rapids.

In response to the ongoing loss of pollinator habitat, the Nevis Women's Club recently undertook a project to create a mile-long pollinator-friendly corridor along the Heartland Trail.

During the program, the club will describe the concept, funding and implementation of their project, which was funded in part by a Clean Air and Land Legacy Grant through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, a release said.

Native plants and grasses will be featured to entice bees and butterflies and to improve habitat for songbirds, the release continued. The project is the first of its kind along any state trail.

The program, which is open to the public, free of charge and handicap-accessible, concludes HCLL's fall series.
