2016 Cleveland Pollinator Symposium - Saturday, October 22, 2016 - 8:00AM - 5:00PM
Immerse yourself in a full day program exploring the ecological concepts that support biologically diverse and healthy ecosystems. Climate changes, invasive plants, monocultures and the alarming decline in pollinators make it imperative that we not only preserve and protect our resources, but that we focus on the ways to change our stewardship approaches---from backyard and public gardens to land management strategies. Our conference brings together well-known experts for a lively exchange of information and expertise. Our speakers will share the most up-to-date information on pollinators, pesticide usage and best practices in creating pollinator habitats and protecting their health. Learn how you can make a positive difference in your community and the world.
