These days, we’re constantly reading articles about the perils our environment is facing. This may seem like such a colossal issue that there isn’t much you can do about it. However, simply staying informed is a giant step in the right direction. The 2018 Pollinator Summit is geared towards bringing educators, businesses, and nature lovers together just for this purpose!
Learning to Conserve
The Colorado Pollinator Network was established in 2016 to help create a sustainable pollinator habitat not just in our state, but all across the country. The education that will lead to that starts right here at home! The 2018 Pollinator Summit will be held on Friday, November 9th at 8am. All adults with a passion for pollinators are welcome. However, you’ll have to register beforehand. The program, which includes educational presentations and discussions, requires a $40 registration fee. This will cover all programming as well as a midday break for lunch.
Why Protect Our Pollinators?
The pollinators of the world are our birds, bees, butterflies, beetles, bats, and more. They’re often winged creatures but can be any small animal that carries pollen from plant to plant. Pollinators are essential to the proliferation of flowering plants, including fruits, vegetables, and nuts. As a matter of fact, they’re responsible for one out of every three bites of food we take. Needless to say, in order uphold our agricultural system, pollinators are necessary. The 2018 Pollinator Summit will teach you how to protect them.
