Two More Opportunities to Help Pollinators Thrive

The Adamah (Earth) Initative invites you to be part of their exciting programming to learn how to help pollinators thrive.

On August 23, a group led by restoration ecologist, Stephanie Shuck learned about this:

While bees are our most famous and prolific pollinators, they are only one piece to the pollination puzzle.  Learn about pollinators in Indiana and around the world, and delve into the intricacies of their invaluable role. Stephanie will discuss issues our pollinators face, such as habitat loss, and how you can build native pollinator gardens and advocate for conservation of native habitats.
