Science Pub: Pollinators, People and the Planet: A Love Story --Asheville, NC
February 15, 2019, 5:30 PM – 6:0 PM, The Collider, Asheville, NC
Plants have been using colorful flowers and nectar to seduce pollinators for millions of years. Even though we are beginning to understand that one in every three bites we take is dependent on a pollinator of some kind, conventional landscaping and agriculture often have invisible "Keep Out" signs where pollinators are concerned. Join Phyllis Stiles, Xerces Pollinator Champion and founder of Bee City USA, to learn why and how Bee City USA affiliates are changing the way they landscape to welcome at-risk pollinators with the goal of reversing their global declines.
