Event description

Description

Arrive at 730 am-800 am for registration. Free parking and breakfast refreshments.

2018 Summit was standing room only. An independent poll shows 87% of Minnesota citizens are concerned about pollinator decline, and justifiably so. Bees and pollinators are struggling, putting natural ecosystems and agricultural systems at risk. Communities need to act now with ecologically sound land management practices and policies. Best Practices for Pollinators provides resources, background and innovation. This comprehensive summit is packed full of useful and practical knowledge. By popular demand, this year: longer, indepth talks and more Q&A opportunities.

Who should attend: Land managers (private, public, community, county, state), policymakers, public works and parks managers, environmental & parks commissions, roadside managers, parks & trails managers, county commissioners, city council, city and county planners and supervisors, and conservation educators.

Registration/Limited seating…. includes breakfast refreshments and materials. Certificate of completion available. Brought to you by Pollinator Friendly Alliance. Check in opens at 730 am. Resource tables are open until 1:30 pm.
