To BEE or not to BEE Pollinators: the wingmen (or wingwomen) of nature
Sunday August 15 at 11 am
Learn what makes a pollinator a pollinator, what their function is and why they are so critically tied to our own sustainability. What do flowers do? How do plants reproduce? How do climate change and other environmental challenges threaten pollinators? What is the ecological relationship between flowers and pollinators from the beginning of pollination some 200 million years ago? These are just some of the questions that will be discussed as you discover what we can do to help these essential animals, their ecosystems and ourselves.
