Here’s your May 19th update…


Today, we have an article from United Way of Larimer County and our region’s school district leaders.

They say COVID has affected school attendance, academic progress, and social-emotional growth in Larimer County youth. 

There has been a 200% increase in referrals to prevention education and a 50% decrease in volunteer inquiries.

They say Colorado 2-1-1 is a fast and easy way to connect with available resources for those who need them.

Also, Positive adult role models are needed. Visit NOCOVolunteers to find out how you can make a difference.

In our weekly North Forty Gardener article, Gardens on Spring Creek writes about Perennials and Annuals for Pollinators.

When selecting the elements of your garden, it’s best to include plants of varying shapes, sizes, and species to cater to all pollinators.  

Perennials, Annuals, and herbs can be used in a variety of ways in your garden for visual interest.

We have a list on our website, along with advice from the experts.
