Our Urban Pollinators, May 13, 2017
Our Urban Pollinators will get you buzzing about bees, butterflies, birds and some-thousand other pollinating insects and animals!
Why learn about pollinators? There has been a steep decline in honeybee and native bee populations in North America. These declines in pollinator populations has been attributed to a number of things, such as climate change, habitat loss and neonicotinoid pesticides.
What will I learn? Our Urban Pollinators will introduce you the roles native bees and other benefial insects and animals play in ecosystems and in producing human food and other plant products. You will leave this workshop ready to engage your students with species they can see buzzing and flying around the school grounds, in their neighbourhoods and throughout the city!
