NACD Urban and Community Conservation Webinar– Pollinator Conservation

NACD April2019 U&C Webinar – Pollinator Conservation

The next NACD Urban and Community Conservation webinar, scheduled for 12:00noon-1:00pm Eastern time, on April 18, 2019 will feature Pollinator Conservation.

 

The Pollinator Stewardship Council will report on an ongoing project, Pollinator Habitat on Three Different Types of Corporate Properties. For four years, Ohio businesses have collaborated with beekeepers to provide pollinator habitat, encourage new beekeepers through 4-H, inspire other businesses and individuals to create habitat and collect data showing the benefit to pollinators.

The West Multnomah SWCD in Oregon has incorporated pollinator habitat into opportune projects throughout the area and trained volunteers to monitor them for pollinators over the past three seasons. Information about this community science model will be shared, including the program’s model, results, lessons learned and resources. The District also developed informative tools such as the Meadowscaping Handbook and Pollinator Bloom Time Chart to help people develop pollinator habitats in urban yards and rural landscapes.

These popular webinars, held on the third Thursday of each month, are sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation in partnership with the NACD Urban and Community Resource Policy Group. There is no cost to participate, but space is limited. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, email Debra Bogar at deb-bogar@nacdnet.org WITH your name, title, district or business name, state and email address. Information to access the webinar will be sent by email.
