Bees, butterflies, moths, and other beneficial insects provide valuable ecosystems services for farmers through pollination. These same insects also pollinate the native plants in our rural and urban landscapes, thus helping to maintain our state’s lush green vegetation. Helping pollinators has never been more important. Spend part of your Saturday with education, research and field-based experts to see how you can make a positive impact on pollinators through your work.
