We all have heard of the plight of North Carolina’s native pollinators. Loss of habitat, disease, climate change, and non-native species are all issues affecting the health and diversity of our native pollinators in the state.
Join us for a discussion of the incredible diversity of North Carolina’s pollinators and their habitats. Learn about the efforts that are being implemented statewide to save these extremely valuable and fascinating creatures.
The talk is free, but seating is limited, so registration is required by calling 828-255-5522.
