What’s the buzz about native bees?
Pollinators contribute substantially to the economy of the United States and are vital to keeping fruits, nuts, and vegetables in our diets. Over the past few decades, there has been a signifi cant loss of pollinators— including honey bees, native bees, birds, bats, and butterfl ies—from the environment. The problem is serious and poses a significant challenge that needs to be addressed to ensure the sustainability of our food production systems, avoid additional economic impacts on the agricultural sector, and protect the health of the environment.

Featuring Crystal Boyd, MN Department of Natural Resources and Marcie Forsberg, Pollinator Friendly Alliance
