Protecting Pollinators: A Natural History Approach

April 17, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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.

Speaker: Gary Krupnick, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History
Event Location: Schmidt Conference Center

Lectures start at 7pm; light refreshments at 6:30. Free and open to all—curiosity is the only prerequisite.
