Protecting Pollinators: A Natural History Approach
Speaker: Gary Krupnick, Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History
Get inspired by stories of Bay Optimism this year! Learn what's working in conservation in the Chesapeake and around the world, and how we can do more of it. SERC's monthly Bay Optimism lectures run every third Tuesday of the month, March through October. Lectures start at 7pm; light refreshments at 6:30. Free and open to all—curiosity is the only prerequisite.
Pollinators like bees and butterflies are critical to our nation’s economy, food security, and environmental health. But many pollinators are in serious decline. In this talk, Smithsonian botanist Gary Krupnick will provide insight into current efforts at reducing the continued loss of pollinator populations. He will also highlight the development of a national strategy that government agencies and private organizations are currently implementing to rescue them from the brink.
