Description

Pollinators play a crucial role in the production of fruits, vegetables, honey and field crops. They also support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils, and support wildlife. Declining populations of bees, birds, butterflies, bats and insects led MU Extension to develop a curriculum to help the public learn about pollinators and how to increase their presence. Anyone interested in nature, gardening, beekeeping or agronomy will learn how to create a better environment where pollinators can thrive. Master Gardeners will find the class of particular interest.

Program topics include: insects; plant-pollinator relationships; native pollinators; honeybee variants and their habitats; the three P’s of honeybees—pests, products and pollination; and conserving, creating and managing pollinator habitat. 

Cost: $100
