April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$45
More than 700 North American bee species are in decline. Monarch butterfly numbers are down more than 80% since the 1990’s. Beekeepers around the world continue to experience unusually high bee losses every year since 2007. This course will also cover the basics of pollination, specific examples of plant pollinator relationships, varying worldwide responses to honey bee decline, and what you can do to help.
