Wild Ones 2018 Pollinators In Crisis: An Intervention Using Native Landscaping Conference presented by the Lake to Prairie Chapter. Our chapter’s mission is to educate, which we do with our monthly meetings at the Fremont Public Library, covering a wide range of natural landscaping and environmental education topics. Bringing educators together in one place at this conference will provide a wealth of information for people new to the native plant idea and the practiced native gardener.
Without the actions of pollinators, agricultural economies, our food supply and surrounding landscapes would collapse. The nearly invisible action of pollinators is a precious resource and unfortunately, is in great jeopardy. Pollinator decline is complex and has many contributing factors.
This year’s conference brings together well known speakers who will share their up-to-date information on pollinators, native plants and the best practices for creating ecologically sound habitats. Remember what Edmund Burke said, “Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.” This conference will give you the knowledge of what YOU can do to support the pollinators in and around your world.
