Public concern over pollinator decline is overwhelming and justifiably so. Over 400 of our native bee species are struggling, putting ecosystems and food supplies at risk. Minnesota beekeepers lost over 50% of their honey bee colonies last year. Now is the time to make change. Pollinator Friendly Alliance and Pollinate Minnesota invite you to join us for an in-depth symposium designed to inspire, connect and unite for a pollinator friendly Minnesota. Learn about pollinators and their relationship to birds, wildlife and biodiversity, farm and urban habitat, pesticide and advocacy issues in a friendly and motivational environment. We welcome all who want to help pollinators including educators, farmers, gardeners, city staff, elected officials, conservationists, and community organizers.
Facilitated by Jim Riddle (with PFA and PM)
Speakers will include:
Sarah Foltz Jordan
Dr. Vera Krischik
