Pollinators in the Urban Environment

Start Date

Description
With bee populations being threatened by colony collapse, lack of quality habitat, disease and pesticide use, it is critical that we address the issues and provide as much healthy habitat as possible. Urban landscapes offer a large range of opportunities to incorporate pollinator plant species and techniques. These projects also pose challenges with regard to maintenance, heavy use, harsh growing conditions, and public perception. This presentation and panel discussion will investigate established and emerging strategies for developing appropriate habitat to support pollinators that also work for urban conditions.
