Pollinators–bees, butterflies, and other insects–provide an essential service for the environment supporting over 85% of the world’s flowering plants and more than two-thirds of the world’s crop species. Beyond agriculture, pollinators are keystone species in most land-based ecosystems. Conservation of pollinating insects is critically important to preserving both wider biodiversity and healthy agricultural systems.
Join us for this event to learn how to identify native bees and other beneficial insects, as well as how to design your property to attract these good guys and minimize your impact on them and how to attract native predators of common agricultural pests.
Get these naturally occurring good bugs to visit your property, and eliminate some of your farming nuisances.
