Celebrate pollinator week by learning more about pollinators, why they are important, the threats they face, and what you can do to help them. Presenters will focus on native pollinators, bees and climate change, supporting pollinators in gardens and other natural areas, supporting bees in urban areas, and current pollinator conservation efforts. Attendees choose from three hands-on workshops related to creating pollinator habitat in your yard or neighborhood park.
